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...

Those are things of the past, no longer necessary in today’s directly connected world. Why isn’t file sharing like calling someone on the phone - a direct connection without the involvement of third parties? Diode Drive makes this possible - it allows you to share files directly...
