Before running your Storage Node for the first time, please note the storage node concepts to be used.
How to specify ports - which are points through which information flows between your node and the Storj network.
A wallet address to receive STORJ token payouts for running the node. Learn how to obtain a valid payout address.
Email address so that we can notify you when a new version has been released. (recommended)
External IP address or the DDNS you configured and the port you opened on your router
If you are using a custom port other than 28967, you have to change the
How much bandwidth you can allocate to the Storj network. Be sure to allow for other use cases you have for your internet connection, and do not allocate more than your ISP supplied up and download speed can physically supply. To calculate the maximum monthly BANDWIDTH you can enter here, follow instructions here. The minimum bandwidth requirement is 2TB.
How much disk space you want to allocate to the Storj network
Be sure not to over-allocate space! Allow at least 10% extra for overhead. If you over-allocate space, you may corrupt your database when the system attempts to store pieces when no more physical space is actually available on your drive. The minimum storage shared requirement is 500 GB, which means you need a disk of at least 550 GB total size to allow for the 10% overhead.
Replace it to the location of your identity files. You can copy the absolute path from the output of the identity commands you ran earlier.
Replace it to the local directory where you want files to be stored on your hard drive for the network.
1. Copy the command format appropriate for your OS into a text editor:
docker run -d --restart unless-stopped -p 28967:28967 -p 127.0.0.1:14002:14002 -e WALLET="0xXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" -e EMAIL="firstname.lastname@example.org" -e ADDRESS="domain.ddns.net:28967" -e BANDWIDTH="20TB" -e STORAGE="2TB" --mount type=bind,source="<identity-dir>",destination=/app/identity --mount type=bind,source="<storage-dir>",destination=/app/config --name storagenode storjlabs/storagenode:beta
On Windows, you need to format the paths using double backslashes:
docker run -d --restart unless-stopped -p 28967:28967 \-p 127.0.0.1:14002:14002 \-e WALLET="0xXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" \-e EMAIL="email@example.com" \-e ADDRESS="domain.ddns.net:28967" \-e BANDWIDTH="20TB" \-e STORAGE="2TB" \--mount type=bind,source="<identity-dir>",destination=/app/identity \--mount type=bind,source="<storage-dir>",destination=/app/config \--name storagenode storjlabs/storagenode:beta
2. Edit the
<storage-dir> with your parameters.
3. Copy the updated command.
4. Run it in a terminal window.
5. You're officially a storage node operator! 🎉
