Programmable Data Composability for Trustless Data Primitives
What is Glacier
Glacier is building a composable, modular and scalable L2 data network for large-scale Dapps，with the mission to empower decentralized apps (DApp) to build on decentralized databases (DDB). It provides programmable data composability solutions powered by L2-rollup to seamlessly and effortlessly handle datasets with NoSQL GlacierDB on top of Arweave, Filecoin, BNB Greenfield, and more.
What Problem does Glacier Solve
Pseudo-Decentralization: Most Dapps still remain highly centralized by relying on large cloud database providers, which present significant drawbacks including lack of individual data ownership and without Web3-native method for granting access and fostering collaboration.
Lack of Scalability and Capacity: The pain points Glacier seeks to address is that the decentralized storages are designed primarily for maintaining data immutability but not ideal for requiring data with frequent updates on-chain. And the absence of built-in querying capabilities presents difficulties in efficiently retrieving the data.
Uninteroperability of Smart Contracts: Dapps of different blockchains are like isolated islands - no communication and interaction existing between them without a third-party database solution. User & developer experience is affected as this applies to all of their Dapp ecosystem.
How does Glacier Work
Composable, modular & scalable NoSQL Structure The core of Glacier Network is a composable, modular and scalable NoSQL database—GlacierDB. It is built for resilience, immutability, interoperability, and the highest levels of data privacy and security in Web3.
Large-scale On-chain Adoption with L2 Rollup Glacier powers massive amounts of data in production and fully mines the on-chain data to provide better data services to users. Modularization and decentralization is secured by zk-rollup.
Built On the Top of Permanent Storage Glacier applies IPFS, Arweave and BNB Greenfield to store, share, and host datasets at scale to make the storage and query fully secure.
Mint & Build Your Own Datasets in One Minute With Glacier, developers can securely mint and build their own database in a permissionless way that enables Web3 devs to utilize data easily and effortlessly with ultra low cost.
Why Utilize Glacier
Seamlessly & Effortlessly: Glacier offers a MongoDB-like interface powered by L2 Rollup, significantly reducing the entry barrier for developers.
Modular Design First: Glacier excels in compatibility. Our modular design caters to different requirements across multi-chains and multi-storage layers.
Support Interoperability: Glacier provides full interoperability to the Web3 data and make the Web3 data easily queried, transferred and interoperated.
What Value Added to Your Business
Ultra Low Cost: Glacier can save 90% cost for Dapps developers utilizing our bundle and batch operations.
High Query Reliability: The decentralized storage is mainly designed for storing data, but not yet for accessing & querying data with frequent updates. Glacier can write and run any query to search the contents of all stored transactions, assets, metadata and blocks on the Glacier network.
Data Model Design: The Data structure of SocialFi, NFT, and GameFi is intricate, resulting in the significant generation of off-chain data. Glacier is dedicated to constructing Data Models and empowering applications in a fully decentralized way.
Modularity: Modular Design enables developers to seamlessly utilize their desired storage layer across multi-chains powered by L2 Rollup.
