The future Internet infrastructure will bring a new storage concept to the distributed storage system represented by IPFS.

When it comes to the idea of distributed systems combined with blockchain for file storage and content distribution network protocols, IPFS has to be mentioned. IPFS provides users with a unified addressable data store. Protocol Lab’s proposed IPFS, which connects all devices with the same file system, complementing or replacing the Hypertext Transfer Protocol, is essentially a P2P distributed storage system.

Unlike all current Web protocols, resources stored on the IPFS network can not be accessed using the domain name, but by generating a unique code for the contents of the file to be accessed, without verifying identity, only the content, so that the Web page can be accessed quickly and securely.

In short, the files are stored in IPFS and scattered into many fragments, which can be verified. In the scattered network, visitors can find the location of the files to download through the file encoding. Because the storage is scattered, the same content may be stored by multiple servers, and not all node servers are online. So the core of IPFS is the goal of creating storage services that are long enough. This is different from the centralized storage of HTTP, where the domain name is looked up and the server remains online.

IPFS distributed storage project ushered in a great opportunity. Most of China’s network data nodes are concentrated in first-tier cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, and data centers have a high degree of dependence on the network.

In addition, Yunnan-Guizhou, Gansu, Inner Mongolia and other regions have more renewable energy and lower costs. The implementation of “East Count and West Count” means that data from the eastern coastal cities will be transmitted to the western regions for processing and storage.

FIL token acquisition based on IPFS distributed storage technology is a technology that can be landed on the block chain project, itself is a very active network technology.

At present, domestic FIL token acquisition is mainly concentrated in IDC distributed storage rooms, rather than using mathematical methods to provide valuable storage services like BTC.

Not only is there no policy constraint risk, but it is even expected to become the mainstream trend of big data cloud computing in the Internet field in the future.

As a breakthrough block chain technology, IPFS distributed storage can well solve the current network data storage bottleneck and data storage security problems.

Moreover, IPFS technology can provide low-level support for artificial intelligence, big data, Internet of Things, distributed storage, etc., and establish a good information foundation for them.

However, since the birth of the Internet, the storage mode adopted is central storage. With the development of the information society, technology changes with each passing day, and the amount of data becomes larger and larger, the disadvantages of this storage mode are also emerging continuously, and it is no longer suitable for the development needs of modern and future society, such as slow and poor speed, etc.

Distributed memory breaks a file and stores it in different places. Hash algorithm is used to connect and encrypt it. Even if a file is decrypted, complete information cannot be obtained, which solves the security problem of data storage from the structure. Moreover, IPFS and Filecoin have natural disaster prevention capability, which allows data to be stored forever, which is also one of the important significance of IPFS& Filecoin distributed storage.

As a “factor of production” that goes hand in hand with land, capital, labor and technology, it has important value, and data security is the primary task. However, the distributed storage technology of IPFS and Filecoin can fundamentally solve the problem of data security.

The IPFS& Filecoin industry is facing a huge opportunity. It should take the initiative to provide data security services, actively participate in the national data security construction, and finally realize the purpose of Filecoin: a distributed network for storing the most important information of human society!
