Raspberry Pi File Server
There are no inherently “cloud” components of Diode-based applications – they are decentralized systems, aggregating capabilities from the edge-connected participants. While that has many advantages (security, low-cost-of-maintenance, efficiency, accessibility), it means that some of the state persistence that centralized Web2 applications take for granted must be provided for differently in a pure Web3 / Diode environment. In the case of Diode Drive, if all Team Members in a Zone are just people using their phones...
