Nowadays, there is increasing demand for decentralized storage in both blockchain and cloud technologies. Many blockchains have structured data storage to prove data consistency, while unstructured data storage needs to be enabled with trust and privacy options, just as it is with cloud. InterPlanetary File System for Business (IPFSfB) enables unstructured and distributed data storage in blockchain. This code pattern shows you how to build this type of private storage network in enterprise form using IPFSfB for any blockchain.
Many enterprises and developers face challenges with data loss, duplication, tampering, and content addressing. All of these problems can be solved with a single, comprehensive storage solution: InterPlanetary File System for Business (IPFSfB).
IPFSfB is based on InterPlanetary File System, which combines Git MerkleDAG, BitTorrent Bitswap protocol, and Kademlia DHT capabilities, building a privacy layer on the top of the libp2p protocol using cryptographic tools.
Inspired by the build your first network (BYFN) sample from Hyperledger Fabric, IPFSfB is built with Docker and Docker Compose to start up quickly on any platform or computer, and enables them to run distributed and private storage networks in enterprise form where any blockchain can store unstructured data.
This code pattern shows you how to build a distributed and private storage network in enterprise form using IPFSfB.
