Solar Bankers announces new functionality of Solar Nodes: Distributed Cloud Storage System

Solar Bankers is happy to announce that the development team is working on adding a new unique functionality to its devices. In the near future, the Solar Bankers Node will work as unit of a Distributed Cloud Storage (DCS) system fully powered by solar energy.

A DCS is a distributed system for storing and accessing files, data and applications. The data uploaded on the system is not stored on a single server, but rather distributed on several nodes, each with its own storage capacity. Given its distributed nature, a DCS does not have a single point of failure and is thus more resilient to attacks and accidents compared to standard centralized systems. In addition, a DCS is faster than a conventional centralized system as a file can be retrieved from someone nearby instead of hundreds or thousands of miles away.

Solar Bankers’ DCS System will be based on the open-source IPFS protocol (https://ipfs.io/). Users will be able to upload files from an easy-to-use interface accessible from every device. The Solar Bankers Coin will be used as payment for uploading and/or downloading files.

A first version of Solar Bankers DCS System will be released in the coming months. For a sneak peek of the system, watch the video above.
