We will never use legacy internet corporate storage. We will begin with 44 x 8 TB SAS Drive Arrays- 12 Gb/s and increase once storage reaches 50% of capacity. We will always maintain a minimum of 50% available free storage, no matter how fast the network grows, how much storage is required, and no matter the expense involved.
Because of the current climate and prevailing attitudes of legacy internets companies (Facebook, Twitter, Google and other banning ICO advertizing), banks refusing to wire money to blockchain exchanges, and other indicators that those currently in control of the internet, government, and thus, the world’s economies might not always be, “EOS friendly” etc., we at EOS the World feel STRONGLY that storage of vital EOS data should NEVER (even temporarily) be placed in the legacy internet corporation cloud storage facilities (such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure Cloud, Google Cloud Platform, Apple iCloud, etc). It is a imminently avoidable point of potential failure.
Therefore, EOS the World has taken the substantial undertaking to provide (for starters) a formidable 1 PB of new, bare metal storage for each of its data center servers, and will continue to provide only bare metal storage as the network grows, no matter how rapidly, how large, or whatever the expense (which could become very sizable) as time passes and the network grows. Whenever our storage becomes 50% full, we will immediately double the amount of storage, or enough to provide 75% available storage on all primary and back-up locations.
