I suspect, for those watching:
We’re looking for that inflection point where consumed is greater than available. I know Storj is controlling that inflection point. I would love to see that go beyond their control in terms of consumption.
I’m doing my part.
For my critical, personal VM data I backup every 4 hours to 3 targets using restic:
- Local sftp NAS
- BackBlaze B2
- Storj with S3 Gateway (to avoid the 2.x expansion)
It’s not a ton of data (around 10GB), but I’m a pure Ubuntu user and want to recover my Thunderbird email. I’ve corrupted it many times
Good news, it works.
I’ve recovered my Thunderbird email w/ StorJ.
For the paranoid (like myself) out there, it suites my needs. I like the restic/rclone combo and I totally believe in restic at this point.
I’m about 75% there w/ Storj in terms of business viability. Again that inflection point is key to me.
I’m also a Storj node op. I have a lot of Linux expertise and it works perfectly.
Just sharing I guess, but it could be applicable to many folks that want multiple recovery targets with a reasonable RPO.
Would love to know if other Storj node ops are doing something similar and advancing our own cause.
