The promise of the new technology infrastructure begins to come true. Internxt is a Spanish project that offers a file storage service in the cloud with Blockchain technology. An alternative to traditional services like Dropbox, or Google Drive, which are currently the leaders in this category.
Why decide on this cloud compared to others? What contributes the one made with cloud technology?
One of the most relevant characteristics is that our files are stored in computers like ours that are enabled to perform this service. Which is different from traditional large companies that are the custodians of our data. These data are also stored encrypted and the users who decide to perform this function are remunerated for it. These types of solutions are the ones that are beginning to be known as the new architecture of the Internet.
Internxt Drive defines an architecture where all the user's files are encrypted from point to point, in such a way that only with the decryption key that the user has can they be accessed. Using Blockchain is a guarantee of privacy and security with respect to the competition.
At Internxt, we are working on creating the most secure and private cloud storage service used by corporations and the mainstream market: X Cloud. Our decentralized architecture is fundamentally superior to what is currently in the cloud storage market, as noted in different papers. However, the journey to building the world’s most secure cloud storage architecture doesn’t end by the simple use of decentralization. Companies like Dropbox have been investing significant sums of time and money in getting their architectures almost 100% hacker-proof. Although their centralized ecosystems are fundamentally inferior to decentralized ones, we do need to put a lot of work to ensure that one day our architecture becomes more secure and private than theirs, from virtually any point of view. To achieve this, we still need to improve X Cloud significantly, run significant security audits and eventually, X Cloud will become what was meant to be.
