💡 The minimum storage requirements will change over time as the network grows. It is recommended to use more than the minimum requirements to run a robust full node

Recommendations on Running Nodes#


OEC nodes use level db to store block data and state data. Frequently read disks will require a higher requirement for disk performance.


Using the ordinary cloud disk of Alibaba Cloud will cause the node to lag behind in synchronizing blocks.


Alibaba Cloud offers 4 types of Cloud Disks: Standard SSDs, Ultra disks, ESSDs, ESSD AutoPL disks.

Recommendation: Usd Standard SSD for both Alibaba Cloud and AWS machines.
