As opposed to a centrally located server operated by a single company or organization, decentralized storage systems consist of a peer-to-peer network of user-operators who hold a portion of the overall data, creating a resilient system of file storage and sharing.

IPFS - InterPlanetary File System is a decentralized storage and file referencing system for Ethereum.

Swarm - A distributed storage platform and content distribution service for the Ethereum web3 stack.

OrbitDB - A decentralized peer to peer database on top of IPFS.

3Box - User-controlled IPFS database storage for data-rich and engaging applications. Support for profiles, encrypted spaces, and messaging, with additional drop-in plugins to simplify development.
