What is the Mantle SDS

The Mantle Secure Distributed Storage is a multi s3 cloud provider that shards data and distribute it in a network of s3 storage point.

The Mantle SDS uses the Read Solomon Erasure Code algorithm to shred the data and add parity bits to matrices in order to have some data loss tolerance.


Why it is useful

There are two key elements to the SDS. First, the data at each location is meaningless. Secondly, up to 1/4 of the storage point could be compromised and the data would still be accessible.

How it works

When data is posted through Mantle SDS, a Receipt is created. This Receipt contains the pointer to the map that references all the shards needed to make the data.
