If anyone is intrested I can rent a lot of disk space (hundreds of terabits HDD). It’s possible to mount this over iSCSI and start storj node.
This seems completely at odds with the decentralized goals of Storj.
The storage is not located in one datacenter.
iSCSI over WAN?
First letter of iscsi is internet
True, The internet does mean tcp/ip. That doesn’t mean it’s very efficient at it. Unless you have super low latency, fiber to fiber links, and something more secure like mpls. I suspect it would be so much worse than local storage. I second @IOwnCalculus. You can make nodes appear distributed that way, but the storage is centralized, not a good idea.
This would be like using Google cloud as “Your storage for your node” Which defeats the whole purpose of storj.
