Does somebody know if somebody develop a app like Dropbox based on Tardigrade

actualy dropbox or sharepoint is very useful in everyday work

It’s not the purpose of Storj. That’s more Siacoin like. Storj focus is not “cold” storage from what I think. It’s to storage data but for a relatively low period: for cloud development for instance, where’s there a constant flow in traffic.

I disagree.

Storj is marketed as a cloud storage (like S3) competitor. S3 is used for all kinds of different storage needs, where both the storage duration and the frequency of access are highly variable.

Some people use S3 for backups and some people use it for storing website assets that are fetched frequently. Storj can handle both scenarios as well.

There was an example in the documentation how to setup nextcloud with tardigrade as primary storage, but it was removed. https://forum.storj.io/t/using-tardigrade-with-nextcloud-as-primary-storage/5585.

@naxbc Storj focuses on any cloud storage. It’s even written on the tardigrade main page.

Yes, completely agreed with you, but how’s S3 compared to a regular and average OneDrive user?

That’s what I think Storj business model :wink:
Just let’s face it, on a node operator perspective, which is the backbone of Storj, it’s not profitable to run an SNO for cold storage like OneDrive with 1.5$/TB/month.
@Vadim uses Storj as it’s supposed to on both ways, for customer data and SNO perspective.

Storj is not supposed to be used directly by the end user in these cases. OP was asking if someone has built a similar service on top of Storj.

File management is a great use case. You can map filesystems directly with RClone, and use nextcloud (or others) for a dropbox-like experience
