Governments all over the world generate and store petabytes of data – for citizen access. Inspired by ClimateMirror.org, DataRefuge and many others, we want to change that.
We run the global network storage grid that allows you to contribute to safeguarding humanity's data.
We want to shield data from destruction.
Governments change. Priorities change. Sadly, science and data does not always occupy high regard. Public data in public hands can be shielded from politics and alternative facts.
We want data to be stored safely in every home across the planet.
The only way to compete with the vast amount of data storage that government has is for millions of people to band together what we already have.
We want it to be easy to contribute to the storage grid.
Run a Docker image on your computer. Better yet, buy a storage pod and plug it in to the internet at home. Feel great!
We want humanity’s data available now. And, indefinitely.
The data should outlive the politicians and their data centers. It should continue on, in every corner of the world. Forever.

Buy a storage pod
We're not ready to sell these pods just yet, but here's the idea:
- Buy a storage pod from us – small computer & HDD, ~$150 – tax deductible
- Receive it in the mail, plug it in – no setup
- Sit back and contribute to the grid – feel great!
Please join our email list and we'll let you know when they are ready!
Contribute space from your own computer
The operating system that will run on the storage pod will be Docker and infinit based. As a result, our hope is that you will be able to run it in a container on your own computer.
Contribute ideas and code
We'd love to hear your thoughts, we'd love to have you contribute your skills. We're doing all of this in the open on Github, including running the non-profit itself.
