DataBloc delivers secure and affordable enterprise cloud services by aggregating surplus storage and compute capacity from data centers. There are more than 8.4 million data centers around the world. On average, data centers only consume 43.14% of their available storage capacity. Leveraging distributed nodes and blockchain, the DataBloc cloud will provide both host-redundancy and geo-redundancy, facilitating a cloud-based sharing economy for compute and data storage. Instead of starting from scratch, DataBloc utilizes the new generation of a proven software which has been in development since 2006 by Silicon Valley-based data services firm, StoneFly Inc. The software presently serves more than 2,000 enterprise customers and supports different storage types and data services, providing enterprise-quality data optimization, protection, accessibility, and availability.
DataBloc is a web platform that securely and seamlessly connects enterprise customers and service providers. The DataBloc software or “StoneFusion” will become the 9th generation permission-based blockchain solution created by StoneFly. Service providers download the software and list their offered services on the DataBloc platform. Public and enterprise customers input their storage requirements as well as the data services they need. Customers then choose accommodating providers from a customized list and buy services on the platform. DataBloc is a solution in which enterprise-quality service providers may download a software that enables them to sell services and surplus data storage online, eliminating customer acquisition costs.
The amount of usable data is increasing significantly alongside advancements in machine learning, social networks, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of Things. Interestingly, less than half of the data storage capacity is being used. Centralized data service providers lack security and have inefficient business models. Decentralized models provide greater security, but since anyone can serve as a service provider, users lack transparency regarding who holds their data. A permissioned blockchain provides a logical middle-ground solution that delivers blockchain’s security to users while maintaining transparency regarding who handles their data.
StoneFusion’s present version is being transitioned into a permissioned blockchain solution. Ethereum smart contracts will govern every transaction on the DataBloc platform. The STONE utility token will be used to purchase and sell services on the platform.
