BOSTON, MA – Jan. 14, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Sia (sia.tech), a Boston-based subsidiary of Nebulous Inc., has announced their collaboration with Austria-based storage device maker Minebox IT Services GmbH (minebox.io) to provide people with a more secure decentralized cloud data storage option.
“Sia wants to provide consumers and businesses with the perfect data storage solution, the one-stop shop for their files, and act as a personal cloud that will keep files secure and in their control,” said David Vorick, CEO, and co-founder of Sia. “We have taken the power of the blockchain and combined it with file storage, proving the same benefits for files that were previously given to money – no relying on humans, no terms of service, no single points of failure. A true upgrade to how we keep our files.”
Minebox first product, the Minebox NAS (network attached storage device), is designed to integrate with Sia’s platform fully. “To create such a solution we had to make the backup process very elegant and we need to distribute the data across several nodes,” said Vlado Patrushev, CEO, and founder of Minebox. “Similar solutions to Minebox exist, and they can be useful, but if the device physically fails, you’re done. We want to avoid solutions for backup, where the user is not in control. After evaluation of the existing peer-to-peer networks, we saw the architecture of Sia as very elegant, user-friendly and with healthy fundamentals.”
The collaboration with Sia gives Minebox a competitive advantage over competitors by allowing users to share unused space to earn cryptocurrencies and choose where their files are backed up in more than one place offsite.
