Storj node for Android or windows

Sorry if these questions have been asked before…

  1. Does storj has an app to activate android based storage devices as node?

  2. Does the windows based node accept external input USB storage as additional storage sharing?

Yes but you have to make sure your USB doesn’t disconnect abruptly getting your node offline. It’s preferred if you have SATA HDD.

Thanks. I did check the documentation. Do you know if android devices as node is in the development?

No, we do not have plans to implement a storagenode for Android. Maybe some third party could be interested.
The docker doesn’t support Android: Install Docker Engine | Docker Documentation so you need to implement a native android application or maybe wrapper around ARM-compatible binary.
The other way is to directly place an ARM binary to the path on Android:
Run native executable in Android App - namespace gimite
