20 Coolest Cloud Storage Vendors

Symform's Cooperative Storage Cloud breaks a copy of a customer's backup into 64-MB blocks, scrambles those blocks with AES-256 encryption, fragments those blocks into 1-MB fragments, adds 32 1-MB parity fragments for redundancy, and then scatters those 96 fragments to cloud storage nodes around the world. Those nodes come from each customer designating a small part if its own storage capacity to be used as storing fragments of other companies' data.
