Arduino as a microcomputer for making node

Hi everyone! Is it possible to use Arduino MCU to build node?

I would say no. The node needs to run a more or less complete linux distro as a minimum. Raspberry pi should work well, but even with that it may need one of the newer versions.


Raspberry Pi 4 is probably best at this time, though you can get it to work with a 3 Model B.

Ideally you would want a single board computer that can run a Linux Distro. There are many out there to choose from at various price points.

I am not aware of Arduino being able to run Linux Distros. Even if they are capable, it probably would lack the multiprocessing capabilities and memory management that a somewhat demanding application like the Storj Node would require.
