What if you could earn up to 50€ per month by renting unused storage?

Lola by Sonora Labs SAS, is a home-based, secure and energy efficient storage solution based on three ethical fields:

  • Green IT

  • Privacy

  • Revenue sharing

Lola owners decide how much storage capacity they agree to share. The company rents that space and operate it as a CDN.

Lola is aiming at uberising the current internet infrastructure: It wants to free the data from the datacenters and reinvent the Internet.

Lola is a personal storage device operated remotely as a 'virtual data center' for a decentralized and collaborative vision of the internet.
