Contacted by a DCS about fee which would be more than 3000 USD per month unless I reduce the total file numbers stored on the clusters.

The TOS seems to have been changed so that any file under 64 megabyte is counted as one piece, and the fee is calculated based on the number of the pieces.

Now using Storj as a hot storage which consists of a bunch of tiny files like ones inside .git or node_modules folders is economically a bad idea and could cost you a LOT.


The project implements and is decentralized by default, which is an amazing sales point compared to other S3 compatible storage services. However, you need to set up an application layer to reduce the number of actual files uploaded to the storage.
