High-Level Science API
DVID provides a high-level Science HTTP API, focused on connectomics operations, and can shield clients from infrastructure changes and allow easier support for multiple tools.
Inspired by git and open-source version control, DVID allows efficient branched versioning with access to all versions of data at any time.
Extremely Flexible Storage
Because DVID uses key-value stores to persist data, we can use petabyte-scale cloud storage as well as smaller but extremely fast SSDs locally.
