Infinit alpha

Creating a storage using the local filesystem

This will guide you through setting up a silo that uses a locally accessible filesystem directory.

Prerequisites

Creating the Infinit silo

An Infinit silo can be created using any locally accessible filesystem folder indicated with the ‑‑path flag. Note that should the ‑‑path be omitted, the blocks of encrypted data would be stored at a defaut location within the $INFINIT_HOME/blocks/. In addition, the capacity can be limited through the ‑‑capacity flag while omitting it will make the storage unlimited.

$> infinit silo --create --filesystem --name filesystem-storage --path /path/to/folder --capacity 10GB
Created storage "filesystem-storage".
