What is the best operative system to run a storj node?

the best operatve sistem to run as a storj node what do you think is the best: ubuntu diban…win7 win10 ecc

This is easily if your able to run ubuntu that would be the best bet or debian its still pretty good, with no GUI. Windows anything Not so much I wouldnt run a node on a windows because of updates and just the overhead windows has over Ubuntu.


A Unix-like OS is the best choice.


+1 for Ubuntu or Debian.


Ubuntu or Debian. Windows works too, but it is not as streamlined as Linux systems. Also, just based on the community posts, Windows looks to have many issues. I would choose a Linux system any day.

I use RaspiOS (based on Debian) in 32- and 64 bit for my Raspberrys. My VPS runs with CentOS7.

In case it wouldn’t be clear enough with previous answers: definitely Linux-like OS.

I’m using Debian (debian-based distributions) and it’s working like a charm.
If you are not afraid by commandline, I would recommend to use Debian (without GUI) in order to avoid overhead due to desktop.

I have been using it for a long time Debian with a light browser GUI - openmediavault

Ok thank you very much of yours answers…

debian/ubuntu here. But really any OS that has good docker support should work fine.

PhotonOS is made for docker and runs perfectly as a vm on esxi host.
