Permanent Storage

What is decentralised permanent data storage?

Decentralised, permanent data storage on Arweave will change how the world stores data. Arweave is the only datachain that stores data permanently in a decentralised environment.

This means: The data is not stored in one central location, there it is significantly more resilient to hacks and malicious attacks Outages are extremely rare since they are generally caused by physical altercations with centralised servers such as power outages The data is not owned by a single entity, therefore there is no singular body that can change the data or block you from accessing it The data is stored forever so you will never lose it

Today, most data is stored on centralised servers that are owned by a singular entity and prone to attacks. Permanent, decentralised storage is the only way to preserve data securely.
