Storj Labs is pioneering the way of decentralized cloud storage, along with making object storage more secure, resilient, and faster than other leading cloud storage providers.

Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, Storj is a globally-distributed company with employees scattered across 28 cities in 13 countries.
