Genaro Network: What are the Advantages of Distributed Storage?

What is Distributed Storage?
A distributed storage system is an infrastructure that can split data across multiple physical servers, and often across more than one data centre. Data is stored repeatedly among multiple physical servers, which can be more efficient and secure than traditional storage methods.

Storage servers have always been the bottleneck of system performance, and the focal point of reliability and security. Traditional network storage systems use centralized storage servers to store data and cannot scale well enough to meet the storage needs of large-scale applications.

Genaro Network’s distributed network storage uses a scalable architecture that distributes data to multiple nodes and stores customer data through smart contracts, forming a peer-to-peer distribution service that can operate based on proximity. This not only improves the reliability, availability, and efficiency of the Genaro platform, but also makes it easy to scale.

Benefits of Genaro Network’s Distributed Storage:

1. High Performance
Genaro’s distributed storage solution distributes data across multiple nodes, which can effectively increase the speed of storage. For enterprise-class users, Genaro will provide a hotspot high-speed storage area, which can further improve the storage speed. This greatly enhances the overall performance of the platform, while also improving the read and write speed for storage.

2. Hierarchical Storage
It also allows the separate deployment of high-speed storage and low-speed storage. In the case of unpredictable business environments, the advantages of this distributed storage approach will make a big difference in solving the latency problem of hierarchical storage.

3. Scalability
Genaro’s distributed storage solution is highly scalable, and the platform can add multiple storage nodes to expand its capacity. When multiple nodes are added, stored data will be transferred to the new nodes to achieve load balancing, so that there is no overload on a single storage area.

4. Low cost
Genaro’s distributed storage solution has the characteristics of automatic fault tolerance and load balancing. This means that the data can be distributed and stored in low-cost network nodes. In addition, the distributed storage solution can be linearly scaled, which makes the cost of adding and reducing servers low. This makes it easier for the system to be self-sufficient.

5. Privacy
It also offers a high degree of privacy. By splitting the stored data into small chunks that are encrypted before they are scattered and stored on the nodes, it makes it impossible for the hosting nodes to view these files.

With so many advantages, it is no wonder that Genaro’s distributed storage solution is fast becoming the top choice when it comes to storage needs. The Genaro Network is also the first smart data ecosystem with a Dual-Strata Architecture, integrating a public blockchain with decentralized storage. Genaro pioneered the combination of SPoR (Sentinel Proof of Retrievability) with PoS (Proof of Stake) to form a new consensus mechanism, ensuring stronger performance, better security, and more sustainable blockchain infrastructure.
