Globally Distributed Storage Comes to TrueNAS

iXsystems is partnering with Storj, an innovator in Web3 storage, to deliver Globally Distributed Storage (GDS) for TrueNAS users. The GDS service called iX-Storj is first available on TrueNAS SCALE Bluefin BETA and will soon be available for all versions of TrueNAS in Q4 2022. GDS stores data redundantly across a globally distributed network and provides an option for a second or third geographic location for data backups or archives.

Check out the iX-Storj Blog to learn more.
