Yeah but it also says one core per node…
It’s more like a recommendation I’d say… If you have 6 nodes on one drive and your drive can’t handle it, whatever the consequences would be completely on you.
That said, I use 3 nodes per hdd myself and the only problem is the filewalker process on startup which generates a huge amount of iowait, especially for 3 nodes.
That’s actually a pretty smart idea: use Chia plots to quickly fill your drives (and get a chance at XCH) while you wait for Storj to slowly fill over time. As long as you keep an eye on free space (so Storj always has room to grow) I don’t see why the two apps wouldn’t work fine together.
I guess at some point you may have to delete plots so Storj has room: but that’s probably a decision far in the future
It fills quicker than Storj… but if you expect to make income with 200gb in 4 days I have some bad news for you. 200gb will take over a year to make your first income. I’m trying to fill up 5TB+ and I still don’t expect to make anything for about a month or so. The Chia hype is causing the network to basically grow at almost the same ratio as my node can add plots. But it’s better than nothing until Storj claims the space. Then Chia is outta here. I’d rather provide my HDD space for actual use by people/companies. And it seems that also happens to be the most profitable.
