Edge Services


Storj Edge Services are hosted components that provide S3 compatibility and publicly-available data sharing services and are composed of the Storj Gateway MT, the auth service and the link sharing service. Storj Edge Services use server-side encryption.

Note: All of the Edge Services use Design Decision - Server-side Encryption.

The three components comprising the edge services are:

S3 Compatible Gateway

Storj includes a globally distributed, multi-region cloud-hosted Storj-hosted S3 Compatible Gateway.

Linkshare Service

The Linksharing Service is a globally distributed, multi-region cloud-hosted gateway for standard HTTP requests, for sharing objects with users via a web browser.

Auth Service

Both the Storj S3-compatible gateway and the Linkshare service leverage the Auth Service for access management via a registered Access Grant.\
