Cooperative Storage Cloud
Definition - What does Cooperative Storage Cloud mean?
A cooperative storage cloud is a type of cloud storage service model in which data is stored on distributed clients and nodes in a decentralized system. A cooperative storage cloud enables the storage of data on remote and distinct participants, which pool their storage capacity to deliver a unified cloud storage solution.
A cooperative storage cloud may also be referred to as a peer-to peer storage cloud or a cloud storage co-op.
Techopedia explains Cooperative Storage Cloud
A cooperative storage cloud is different from typical cloud storage service providers, which use their own storage infrastructure to host and provision storage. Although there are no dedicated servers/infrastructure for hosting/storing the data, an application server may be present to control and manage the storage logic or the overall storage, sharing and retrieval of data from remote systems.
