New nodes (traffic) questions

hello guys;
i build stoj node around 3 years ago, i turned this off because I could not get enough data.

1- Is low data sharing still going on?
2- if i buy a dedicated storage server, storj can support server cost? i am talking about 1 gbit internet connection no limited.

thank you for time :slight_smile:

2 weeks in on a new node only 30gb stored full vetted on us2 and 48% on salt lake running 1000/1000 connection with 8tb allocated from a large raid 10 storage array it will take a long time to build up to the point you could fund dedicated hardware
