Could we use STORJ for S3 services instead. Half the cost and double on performance and security.

funny - StorJ has not even a production version now. Apart from that I think SIA is ahead in many ways. But for a working project a working service is needed and not some half way finished coming up in the future services

They absolutely have a production version. They are on heroku, and just signed up their first enterprise customer....Cox Enterprises.

the difference make the file contracts. I think in the future Storj and SIA will both get their share of the market. But since none of the projects is really at the point of stable in production it makes no sense to bind in either of them. Imagine the devs just decide to switch to a different project and leave the rest to the open source community ...

Agreed, but Storj is able right now to provide S3 services right now and it is free.......... why not. Storj Labs (offering S3 enterprise services) could go away and the data is still there (network not controlled by anyone).

So basically going back to my original comment/question.
