To provide a decentralized cloud data network infrastructure for Web 3.0.
CESS is a decentralized cloud data storage network infrastructure, built with Substrate open source framework. CESS encourages excess or under-utilized resources as nodes to join CESS’s unrestricted expandable network via the token economy incentive method. Each node joins the CESS peer-to-peer network by contributing data storage resources, computational resources, or network bandwidth. Built on our state-of-the-art virtualization, cloud computing, blockchain and data cryptography technologies, CESS organizes and manages the participating resources providing clients with secure, high performance, and boundless cloud data storage services. In addition to meeting the data storage and sharing demands of individuals and organizations, CESS is capable of supporting large scale enterprise storage requirements with high security and performance.
CESS will implement multiple mechanisms and proof schemes, including Proof of Data Reduplication and Recovery (PoDR²), to ensure data integrity and privacy. Also, a unique Multi-format Data Rights Confirmation Mechanism (MDRC) will be implemented to achieve the data owner rights confirmation and copyright protection. CESS has proposed an auto-executable and transparent protective mechanism based on smart contracts, to verify, track and protect owner rights. It will enhance the existing smart contract technology and will be able to provide more accurate and solid evidences for data owners’ rights. Combined with the high-order data encryption technology, CESS will serve the data clients with superior data storage security and ownership protection in transaction processing. In CESS, data lineage can be tracked and visualized in blockchain browser, providing great user experiences. CESS will solve the data ownership issue in Web 2.0 and give data rights back to data creators.
CESS is dedicated to build an open, secure, transparent, and equal opportunity global decentralized cloud data network. To be compatible with existing blockchain applications on other public chains, the CESS virtual machine is EVM/WASM compatible, providing a more user-friendly, secure and efficient platform for DAPP development. In addition, the CESS API supports two types of data storage: object storage and block storage.
Being a new member of the Polkadot ecosystem, the CESS network will continue the persevering efforts as part of the powerful driving force for the development of Web 3.0.
