One of the major advantages of the AXEL Go private file-sharing application is the utilization of IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) technology. IPFS is a peer-to-peer networking protocol that relies on a distributed file system to share data. With AXEL Go, shared files are distributed to hundreds of Masternodes. When a recipient accesses your document, it is pulled in small chunks from this distributed list of servers in an efficient manner and reconfigured for viewing.
A decentralized file system offers many strengths over traditional server configurations:
- No single point of failure. In a centralized server network, attacks can leave users without access to their data. Worse, it could expose files to malicious agents. AXEL Go is a persistent and resilient file system you can count on to be rock solid.
- Higher performance. Peer-to-peer file transfers scale better and have lower latency than traditional server-based distribution. Your files can be pulled from multiple nearby Masternodes at blazing-fast speeds.
