Offline data courier’s offer a low tech solution to a high tech problem – the need to move data from point A to point B without the use of network. Many ODC clients use the service due to network bandwidth constraints. The volume of data they create exceeds their ability to transmit it efficiently, so they employ “sneaker wear” to move the data. Other clients use offline data couriers for the privacy the service affords to those who needs to transmit data free of digital chicanery.
RAID.451: a R.edundant. A.rray of I.nexpensive D.evices; 451 a nod to Ray Bradbury is an organization dedicated to the offline preservation of data history. They are keepers of a data archive free from network interference, censorship and selective editing. They are numerous - hiding in plain sight as offline data couriers; they are cheap (most of them are former bums); they are replaceable, iterative elements of a massively self-sustaining offline RAID storage system.
