The Internet is the connective tissue of the modern world. It was designed to connect people by allowing them to pass data freely across an open network that links a variety of devices. But the unstructured nature of this expansive network makes it difficult for modern developers to create apps that can take advantage of everything the modern web has to offer.
File Infrastructure is the next evolution of what the Internet promises - a fully configurable and comprehensive platform to organize the data of the Internet for the purpose of building functional, connected applications that can upload data from anywhere on the Internet, transform it for best presentation on any device or framework and then deliver it quickly and dynamically to users. Unlike traditional file systems, which is imposed on users, cloud-based file infrastructure allows developers to easily create unique workflows that provide the best user experience and complements a wide variety of application workflows.
Filestack’s File Infrastructure is a complex system of networking, cloud storage and powerful file processing servers that work together to provide end-to-end file management at web scale and lightning fast speed. It is built and delivered to you as-a-Service or integrated into your application using our intuitive APIs and programming libraries.
Broken down into its individual functions, File Infrastructure looks like this:
