To further its mission of a censorship-free internet for all, the Mysterium Network has chosen Storj decentralized object storage to replicate its S3 object data, including container images, static content, and more. A foundational building block of the company’s software infrastructure, Mysterium’s container images have been downloaded more than 1,000,000 times from Mysterium’s registry on Docker Hub. The registry holds Mysterium’s named Docker images, available in different tagged versions, and users can easily interact with a registry by using Docker push and pull commands.

We care deeply about security and privacy, so it’s no surprise that the official Storj “uplink” client has always supported end-to-end encryption (E2E). Before we delve deeper into the details, let’s define end-to-end encryption: Most end-to-end encryption descriptions say it’s a system of communication where only the communicating users can read the messages. Messages or data are protected from potential eavesdroppers, including telecom providers, internet providers, and even the provider of the communication service.

Hello Everyone! To say we’ve been a bit quiet on sending out product updates lately is an understatement. We’ve been hard at work implementing feedback given by our community— and our community keeps becoming more geographically diverse by the day. Below we’ve listed a few bullet points covering what we’ve been working on and implementing—but the coolest updates are yet to come. One of the more ambitious projects lately has been to run our Satellite components on actual Satellites.

When Amazon launched its S3 service 15 years ago and created the cloud storage industry, it also unknowingly made object storage the standard for storing data in the cloud. Object storage organizes data into objects, which contain the data itself, its metadata, and a unique identifier. These objects are stored in buckets rather than a hierarchical system. Since then, the grand majority of cloud storage services have reinforced this interface, and the majority of people storing data in the cloud use similar architectures.

Today we released a new capability for Hosts (Storage Node Operators) who would like to opt-in and take advantage of L2 payments on the Ethereum network. Hosts on the Storj Network can now elect to receive their payments via zkSync, an L2 Ethereum scaling solution based on ZK Rollup technology. We’ve built this payment option with assistance from our friends at Matter Labs, who are singularly focused on building UX-centric services on ZK Rollup technology.

SolarWinds was founded in 1999, and its first product-managed networks were for business. SolarWinds is best known for its enterprise monitoring product line, which has 33,000 public and private customers, representing about 10% of SolarWinds’ total customers. In December 2020, a hack of SolarWinds was discovered by one of the leading cybersecurity companies, FireEye. FireEye was conducting a forensic investigation of a breach on its own network, which led them to SolarWinds as the possible culprit.
