IPFS has great potential to deliver a modern and progressive internet and to do it considerably more effectively than previous protocols. HTTP, its predecessor, has run its course after more than two decades. It’s time for a more flexible solution to help us manage big data.
The Temporal API has two primary options: The first is a hosted solution. You don’t have to install or manage anything. It’s the fastest and easiest method. The second option requires that you go to the Temporal GitHub, download the code and run it, which is also relatively easy.
Temporal is compatible and can transfer data between private networks, and between public and private networks. Although IPFS doesn’t support encryption, Temporal does, however, it doesn’t store the passwords. It means there no concern regarding vulnerable logs.
Temporal frees the users from vendor lock-in, which means a company doesn’t have to commit to a single service provider. If you start with Temporal’s hosted API and decide that you want to self-host, the transition is easy – just change the API URL. Temporal makes it easy to leverage all the features of IPFS, whether it is private networks, creating your own data types via IPLD, or even running your own search engine.
TemporalX is a faster, more scalable IPFS implementation that will quickly and safely let your business meet its big data demands while still maintaining interoperability with the rest of the IPFS network. It utilizes the traditional IPFS protocol favored by go-ipsf and js-ipfs, which enables compatibility with the rest of the network.
TemporalX has no dependencies on go-ipfs and was built from the ground up to provide an efficient service without sacrificing functionality. TemporalX has consistent and predictable performance regardless of your workload. When leveraging the gRPC benefits, TemporalX can be up to 10 times faster than go-ipfs.
When not leveraging gRPC benefits [re-establishing the connection every request] performance is 2-3 times faster than go-ipfs. In the coming months we are rolling out dedicated TemporalX functions such as built-in data replication, multi-IPFS network capabilities, DHT overlay, and our current feature to launch very soon is S3 and Minio compatibility.
