Why Today’s Cloud Storage has Inconsistent Performance—And How to Fix It
When data is routed through the internet, it must traverse through many different intermediaries making a number of hops, any one of which could become a bottleneck. With typical cloud data storage that uses data centers, traffic gets routed through a hub and spoke model. This places performance at the mercy of the hub and spokes. Storj is more consistent today and will be even faster in the future. And it will do this at drastically lower costs than AWS and its ilk because no replication is needed and the model is significantly less expensive to operate. Consistent performance and low cost is a bright future for cloud storage and data innovation.
