IPFS is a tool and a protocol to host and transfer data in a distributed file system. It works similar to the peer 2 peer BitTorrent network.
Using the IOTA IPFS tool allows users to upload a file to IPFS storage and send and receive the hash of the IPFS storage over the tangle. This enables distributed data storage makes it immutable due to the nature of IOTA's data structure
Due to the Proof of Concept status, the maximum uploadable document size is limited to 75kb at the moment.
