Below we’ve listed a few bullet points covering what we’ve been working on and implementing—but the coolest updates are yet to come. One of the more ambitious projects lately has been to run our Satellite components on actual Satellites.

Storage Nodes run across a diverse distribution of operating systems, hardware types, geographic locations, and owners. Node Operator software runs on Linux systems like Ubuntu, CentOS, Debian, and Fedora, as well as macOS and Windows, with a native MSI installer.
