As my ISP is causing me issues my node is likely to fail soon.
Having run a test node with 800GBytes of storage for 2 months now it’s clear that for general data the income per Tbyte of storage is way lower than anything predicted by Storj. It’s likely that if I was able to keep the node running long term the average income would increase a little due to the fact that other node operators are likely to pull their plugs due to low income and so start to generate additional repair data requests.
For anyone looking to try and build a large node, you should take a look at the
WD_BLACK 12 TB D10 Game Drive for Xbox One 7200RPM
This is a USB drive, that while aimed at the Xbox One market is reported to use the Western Digital DC HC520 drive, which is an enterprise-grade drive.
If it was not for my ISP issues this may have been my next R&D project as it would have gone rather well with my Pi 4.
