Cumulus Encrypted Storage System (CESS) is a decentralized cloud storage network for data storing and sharing, which is high-speed, secure, and scalable.
CESS is an open-source, public blockchain intended to be the underlying network infrastructure for decentralized storage needs.
CESS network consists of four layers:
- Data storage
- Content distribution
- Application layer
CESS’s R²S consensus mechanism coordinates the network resources and network load. It guarantees data security and integrity through proprietary technologies with data ownership protection, technologies such as Proof of Data Reduplication and Recovery (PoDR²), Multi-format Data Rights Confirmation (MDRC), and decentralized proxy re-encryption. CESS aims to be the first decentralized storage network that supports large-scale commercial applications.
CESS is compatible with EVM and WASM, and the underlying development framework Substrate allows cross-ecosystem cross-chain applications to use the CESS network. Its technology stack can support most Web3 applications and the storage needs of enterprise-level applications.
