[Technical] Need help on using decentralized storage with my new Ethereum Dapp project

Hello,

I am building quite a large project on Ethereum. However, I finished building my concept and technical ideas but I am COMPLETELY LOST regarding Storage. This is the only place I think I can ask for help and I would be IMMENSELY grateful for any actual help.

My project requires:

  • Perpetual storage with decentralized and reliable characteristics. I want an immutable and public database.
  • The volume would be in the Mo-Go initially, then would grow probably in the 10-100Go range.
  • Ethereum smart contracts to reference/own the data stored in this decentralized storage solution.

I have looked at:

  • IPFS: does not look perpetual or reliable in the long term. Files are not guaranteed to be stored even if I pay?
  • SAFE network: it looks promising but I have no idea if I could use it with my smart contracts?
  • Storj: It does not look ready to be used but I may be wrong.
  • Anything else?

Honestly, all of these projects have light technical documentation, tutorials here and there and lots of marketing. Nothing really strikes me so far ! I may be confused about how to use decentralized storage with Ethereum Dapps and if this is the way to go.

Obviously I cannot store data on-chain, even though I would love to, that's why I went looking for storage solutions to be used with my smart contracts.

I need help from you dear community. Thank you so much!
