Cubbit, a Gaia-X1 partner, is Europe’s first distributed cloud storage provider: its services exceed current market standards in terms of security, privacy and environmental sustainability. The cloud, as we know it today, is a growing technology, but with limitations due to its centralised, data centre-based infrastructure: many of its services are privacy-unfriendly, susceptible to cyber attacks and data loss, and particularly expensive. In addition, data centres are responsible for a huge amount of CO2 emissions (estimated at 3.7% of those produced globally), while the ICT ecosystem is estimated to be responsible for 10% of the world’s total energy demand today (equivalent to the combined energy production of Germany and Japan).
Cubbit does not use physical data centres. Instead, it enables distributed data centres that connect the internet resources already present in homes and businesses. Its zero-knowledge technology ensures privacy by design and its architecture protects the environment by reducing CO2 emissions through the absence of physical data centres.
The company has already distributed its products to its first 3,500 customers in more than 70 countries around the world and today its distributed network protects more than 15 million saved documents.
