Running Node on VPS

Hi there,

is there a node operator uses a VPS as storj node? Im looking for a VPS Provider in germany, there i can run a node without any problems, and without break there Conditions.
Any experience outside?!

I can recommend looking into dedicated servers, and not waste money for a VPS, any VPS can’t offer so much storage is needed for storage node. Another concern, is VPS network stack, you will have poor storagenode efficiency and can’t do anything with it.

With a root i think a cant work cover the costs. i find a VPS here https://www.kimsufi.com/de/server.xml KS-3 2TB 9,51€ - around 11$/m… but i cant find any informations about traffic

As far as I know they don’t have a traffic limit on there 100mbit/s servers.

I’m running storage nodes on multiple VPS all around the world and it works well.
Some of my nodes are very cheap (1TB for ~$2.5/mo) and (currently) quite profitable.

can u tell me wich provider?

I got the 8TB nodes from https://servarica.com/clients/cart.php?gid=52 , it was a deal and they sold out quickly. But they also do custom plans, just contact them maybe they have a slot left for you.

If you are looking for a storage VPS in Germany you could use https://nexusbytes.com/cart.php?gid=10 , but they have a bandwidth limit.

If you use a VPS I would really recommend you to take a KVM or XEN VPS (like the ones from the providers above).
You can run docker on OpenVZ 7, but it’s still experimental (it does not work on OpenVZ 6 VPS).

thanks for your response. Now ive ordered a kimsufi dedicated server before u answer. =D

There is nothing wrong with kimsufi (OVH) :+1: .
But idk if there is a IPv4 include. I lately had a IPv6 only VPS and I ran into errors with Storj because they don’t support IPv6 only nodes.
If so you need to setup a IPv6 to IPv4 tunnel on your server (or order an additional IPv4).

one IPv4 and one IPv6 is include

Node is online and running, monitored in grafana :smiley:
