The other responses are exactly what I would have pointed you to. I just used the setup instructions here: https://documentation.storj.io/
The sd card on My raspberry didnt like this setup so i moved that node to my server.
Mine is a pretty simple setup. I had an unused ODROID-HC2 and scavenged a 4TB drive from my media mergerfs/snapraid array. I am running Ubuntu 18.04 LTS on it. This node has only been up for a few days. Hoping that I can add to the storj ecosystem!
And here is a pic of my lil’ guy;
@BJWTech can you please share some details regarding the performance of HC2
It performs pretty well. It has the little big architecture. Basically the same processor as the Galaxy s5 IIRC. The USB-SATA controller works well. The integrated heatsink/hard drive mount is why I got it, and that works farily well. Originally it was running some backup LXC containers (pi-hole, glusterfs quorum only node, etc… ) for my LAN. It performed these duties well. I ended up using a pair of refurbished Intel Xeon server boards for all my LAN infra needs, so it was going unused.
As far as using it with storj, I seem to see some memory leaking. Keeping an eye on it. Probably the console redirecting to a json log that’s growing. Have yet to take a deeper dive. May need to restrict that log size.
If anything, I wish it had emmc and 4gb of ram.
I’ve got 10 Odroid HC2s setup for storj and haven’t had any issues in months. They just work.
Bottom PC is my NAS I built. I use it daily. I originally had a Drobo 5N but had to upgrade to a bigger chassis to hold more HDDs because they were beginning to be way to expensive to buy to upgrade the capacity. So I bought a 15 bay Rosewill RSV-L4500 chassis. I originally use the rosewill chassis for GPU mining at first but I made sure I buy a chassis that I can re-use for another purpose. Right now 13 bays are in use, 12 HDDs are in a mirrored storage pool for my own use. I do have a plan on adding more capacity to the NAS by a 2nd Rosewill Chassis and that’s with using SAS Expanders and Host Controllers, this way there is only a single server but I can add chassis of HDDs to it as needed.
My Desktop Gaming PC is the Top Chassis. I bought a rack because I needed to stack the computers in this corner, not much physical space in the room.
Mind sharing where you bought the chassis?
@selea I see you have HP gen 10 microserver ? Which os you are running on this server ?
It is the G8 actually
I just run debian on it, I put a small SSD as boot device in the DVD-place thou
@selea yes gen 8 Sorry?
Holy Hell man! that’s awesome
How are the Odroids working out for you?
