Hi, completely new to hdd mining.
waits for first burst coin
anyways, while i’m here, thought i’d ask the big boys.
what kind of bandwidth does a single hard drive use? IE, 1TB. does this usage go up per TB?
Say, i had a 1000TB SAN system running on a 8Gbps fibre connection – i guess i could mpio it, so… 4x 8Gbps connections.
would a 32Gbps network be fast enough to handle 1000TB system?
i some times have the opportunity to get these older san systems for basically nothing. my boss @ work believes they are worth nothing, and wont even wait a week to sell them when they come in… so we often just throw them out for scrap.
i would have to rent a warehouse as these things are loud as fuck. so also have to make sure it would be able to cover the rent. $2000/mo type thing. shits expensive
other question would be, how much cpu power would i need for a 1000TB system?
i remember about a year ago, we had a 2000TB system, sell for $500, because for whatever reason my boss cant wait a week for anything to sell… i asked him once, if he thought $50 now was better than $5000 tomorrow. He said $50 now. he’s completely retarded. i’m so choked on that one.
