CORTX is very useful as a mass storage tool, and when I considered what I personally found to be most valuable about cloud storage, I kept coming back to media: my personal images and videos. Being able to back up these memories and have the peace of mind that I won’t lose them is a huge benefit of cloud storage. So I decided to build a Flask project which allowed me to not only upload these images to CORTX, and replicate them to IPFS, but also access them through a static web page, connected to the database. This means that not only are my images backed up, but they are accessible remotely, meaning I can show them to friends and family on the go.

What it does

My project allows images to be uploaded to CORTX and IPFS, and also viewed via a static web page, all powered by a Flask app.

How we built it

This app was built using Flask to power a static web page, which was linked to CORTX and IPFS.

Challenges we ran into

Faced intermittent CORTX drop-outs.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

I was proud to get replication with IPFS working.

What we learned

Learned about the value of CORTX as a mass storage tool.

What's next for CORTX-IPFS Media Storage/Viewer

Integration with video files and other formats.
