In general, the cloud if interpreted will mean cloud. But in the field of cloud technology means the integration of technologies — internet technologies such as smartphones, servers, desktops, browsers, applications that are connected in one network, namely the internet. If depicted later all the integration of the technology will form a circle formation that surrounds the internet, and if drawn the line will form like a cloud. By using cloud, users can store data online, without having to use certain infrastructure such as flashdisk, RAM, and hard drive. Online data storage can be started from e mail. Which by using e-mail users can open the data with various technology services provided such as anroid-based smartphones and iOS. Users can also open these data without having to install or download certain applications, but only by using a web platform.
But the storage system on e-mail, whether it’s Yahoo or Gmail, also has certain storage capacities. For example Yahoo has a capacity of 1 GB, therefore there are some special applications such as Google Drive that provide greater storage capacity than e-mail. Storage with cloud technology is also called virtual data storage. Which data is only stored on an internet basis and can only be opened if you activate the internet.
If examined the use of e-mail and several other storage applications can only reach storage quota that is personal data. This is very different from companies — companies that produce large amounts of data every day. Even with the category of files that can be categorized as very important. Therefore, in 2019, Stonefly as a data service company on an international scale, introduced the latest Databloc storage platform, as a blockchain technology based storage media platform. Just like other platforms that implement cloud systems, let’s look at an overview of the cloud in the Databloc system:
- Web Platform
Databloc can only be accessed and used using an internet network. Users can see several categories of storage services offered and of course equipped with price specifications. Here users can choose the types of cloud based on the needs of each user. These types of cloud are like private cloud and public cloud. Examples of the use of private cloud is for users who only store data of certain people, such as the big police in the Silicon Valley region who set up a private cloud on the spot. By utilizing Databloc technology, the police are also permitted to lease excess capacity to trusted parties. For example, branches of police stations that have less authority. But even though these two offices are categorized the same (security), data security must still be maintained. Therefore the large police station storage system can activate private mode. That way the benefits can be the same. First, large police stations can get more funds, and the police branch does not have to rent a private cloud that provides greater storage capacity.
- Data Center Software
Databloc was originally a platform developed by Stonefly, therefore it can be ascertained that there are a large number of technological components transferred from Stonefly to Databloc. The basic thing that distinguishes it is the application of blockchain technology that makes Databloc’s quality accountable in the data storage market. As a fairly ambitious project, at least Stonefly has disbursed around $ 40 million and employs around 16 reliable engineers in the software field. Some data services are offered such as data optimization, availability, accessibility, encryption and security.
- Stone Token
As a storage medium that utilizes blockchain technology, of course for each operation carried out it will use tokens. Tokenisation is the first step for users to be able to access Databloc services. Please note that Stone tokens are not designed for investment purposes, because there is no guarantee of that. Users who make payments using Stone tokens will get certain bonuses. Stone tokens also provide services such as transparent profit sharing systems between Databloc, Node, and end users. In this system Node will get a profit of 80% and Databloc by 20%.
As a cryptocurrency platform that provides online data storage services, Databloc should have adopted various technological components that can improve the quality of security, in order to maintain customer trust.
