Distributed, content-addressable data storage

Bitcache is a distributed content-addressable storage (CAS) system. It provides repository storage for bitstreams (colloquially known as blobs) of any length, each uniquely identified and addressed by a digital fingerprint derived through a secure cheap ghdcryptographic hash algorithm.

Repository backends currently range from local in-memory pensacola auto title loans and file system clash of clans (plain file &GDBM) adapters to remote network connectors for Memcached, HTTP, SFTP, and Amazon S3. Additional adapters are in the works for FTP, TFTP, SQLite, MySQL and PostgreSQL.

Bitcache provides a command-line client (called bit) for vine online managing and querying repositories, a standalone HTTP bounce house rentals pensacola server bitcached) for serving or proxying repositories using a acai simple web-nativeREST API, and a synchronization utility (bitsync) for replicating bitstreams between repositories.

Bitcache is written in Ruby and released under the open-source MIT License. Development, including the SVN repository, is hosted at RubyForge. Another Bitcache server implementation also exists for the popular PHP-based Drupal content management system.

Bitcache is inspired by Plan 9's Venti storage system and Linus Torvalds’s Git source control management system.
