ClearCenter and Sia have announced a partnership to lay the foundation of the Blockchain-secured ClearSHARE decentralized storage platform. The combined solution will provide an easy-to-use and scalable decentralized storage service backend. The new ClearSHARE platform will be built upon Sia’s Blockchain-based secure storage layer. ClearSHARE will be compatible with the CLEAR Token ecosystem and ClearCenter’s new ClearNODE product line that was released with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). ClearNODE is a bundle of hardware, software, and services aimed at providing a secure platform and decentralized app (Dapp) marketplace for Blockchain-related services, developers, and applications.
“Decentralized cloud storage brings huge benefits. We are excited that ClearSHARE will bring Sia to small businesses and enterprises with a user-friendly solution.”
ClearSHARE will have the option to combine Sia’s back-end storage with Nextcloud’s user interface and integrate both services into ClearCenter’s ClearOS operating system. The completed ClearSHARE app will deliver the first truly turnkey Blockchain-based storage platform that will be disruptive inside the small business storage industry since ClearSHARE will not require Linux command line knowledge or other advanced IT skills.
ClearSHARE will mirror data both on-premise and also in a secure decentralized peer-to-peer global cloud network. ClearSHARE automatically splits, encrypts, and distributes customers’ files and data in the background without requiring special IT skills or knowledge to implement. The customer only has access to encryption keys and maintains absolute control over his or her data.
Locally, ClearSHARE provides data backup and redundancy benefits similar to a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device. The addition of automatic mirroring on a decentralized worldwide network brings consistency, verifiability and the peace-of-mind against the prospect of a local disaster or service interruption causing a loss of data.
In addition to utilizing ClearSHARE’s network for remote backup, customers can earn CLEAR Tokens by optionally making their own unused storage capacity available to the ClearSHARE network.
“We’re grateful for the team at Sia and their willingness to work with us to help the ClearSHARE platform succeed.”
In the future, ClearCenter plans to bring additional Dapps and services to ClearNODE, including a hybrid hardware/software wallet app and the ability for ClearNODE owners to farm CLEAR Tokens in a compute-resource and environmentally friendly fashion.
