Announcing Automatic Bucket Migration for Skynet and Storj Customers

Today we're announcing automatic bucket migration for existing Skynet and Storj buckets.

Last month, we announced that we would be ending support for Skynet and Storj on our platform starting October 15th due to under utilization of these networks.

On October 15th, we disabled write operations for these networks to prevent uploads of new data, though read operations are still functional for users to manually migrate their data from Skynet and Storj buckets to a Sia or IPFS bucket. Data stored in these buckets has not been removed.

To prevent data loss and aid in the migration process, Filebase will be automatically migrating all existing Skynet and Storj buckets into Sia buckets.

What Does This Mean For You?

All URLs for objects stored in Skynet and Storj buckets will remain the same once they have been migrated to a Sia bucket. Bucket and object names will not be changed or altered.

There is no action required from the user's perspective, and current workflows or configurations using existing URLs will continue to function as they do now.
