IPFS Distributed Web
A peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol to make the web faster, safer, and more open. IPFS is useful here and now: a) Archivists – It’s not enough to organize the world’s information—we need to store it in a way the world can remember it. IPFS provides deduplication, high performance, and clustered persistence; b) Service providers – If your company delivers large amounts of data to users, a peer-to-peer approach could save you millions in bandwidth. IPFS can provide secure P2P content delivery; c) Researchers – If you’re working with, distributing, and analyzing huge datasets, IPFS offers fast performance and decentralized archiving; d) Developing world – High latency networks are a real barrier of entry to developing world. IPFS provides resilient access to data, independent of low latency or connectivity to the backbone; and e) Content creators – IPFS brings the freedom and independent spirit of the web at full force—and at low cost. IPFS can help deliver content in a way which can save you considerable money. This will be added to the Peer-to-Peer section of Deep Web Research and Discovery Resources 2016.
