IneryDB: Exploring the Various Use Cases

Overview of the CAP Theorem and the Blockchain
Can Blockchain Level Up The Music Industry?

When you look into it deep enough, you realize that most industries share the same database problems. Issues like security, single points of failure (SPoF), and data silos create a cascading effect, resulting in the majority of industry-specific snags.

But where do these “first-domino” problems come from? Do they have a shared root? Sort of.

As it turns out, we can trace most database headaches to centralization. Centralized databases are SPoF nightmares just waiting to become reality. And that’s not even mentioning the potential for data siloing among departments that centralize and wall off their data from the wider organization. From there, vulnerabilities, profit leaks, and general inefficiencies abound.

All of this begs the question: how can a decentralized database improve matters?

This is what Inery strives to explore. Inery’s decentralized DBMS based on a layer-1 blockchain offers a radical approach to database management. Below are the ways in which that approach fixes database pain points across industries.

Note: you can learn about these use cases in greater detail on our blog. In each section, you’ll find a link that leads to a more in-depth post.
