Store and Retrieve your files on Züs.

Store on Züs for high performance storage with full ownership of data, complete transparency and privacy.

How Does it Work?

The process of storing and retrieving a file on Züs involves four key steps from start to finish: uploading a file, splitting up a file, distributing a file, and accessing a file.

Upload a file
1

Upload a file

To get started, you can customize your storage plan and select your own storage providers (Blobbers), or can ask the network to select randomly based on your preferred cost, redundancy, size, and number of data and parity blobbers.

Once your offer is matched with a batch of Blobbers, you can select a file to upload to the Züs Cloud Network.

Technical Note
Once your storage plan is “matched, a proof of this storage agreement is issued to the Züs blockchain in the form of an “Allocation ID”".
Split up the file

Split up the file

As the file is uploaded, it is encoded for redundancy and then split up into fragments.

Technical Note
This is an erasure coding process that enables the stored files to be distributed and resilient (reliable). For additional privacy, you can opt to encrypt your file prior to uploading.
Distribute the file fragments
3

Distribute the file fragments

Your file fragments are then distributed out to various servers (Blobbers).

Technical Note
The fragments are both distributed to and stored by your allocated batch of Blobbers, as per the storage agreement terms (specified in Allocation ID).
Access your file
4

Access your file

When you want your file, the fragments are brought back together again, reshaping the file to its original form.

Technical Note
Only a specified number of fragments, as per the Allocation ID, are required to reshape the file. This means the file can be reshaped even if only a portion of Blobbers is online.

Data consumption is rapidly increasing.

Time to decentralize

Global Data Consumption (ZB)
Source: Statista Volume of data/information created, captured, copied, and consumed worldwide from 2010 to 2020, with forecasts from 2021 to 2025
Global data consumption is growing at a faster rate than ever before. Today, virtually all of the world's data is stored on centralized servers and replicated which is inefficient, unsustainable, and not eco-friendly.
