    Do you think you can meet the hardware requirements (Revised BetaNet Node Hardware Requirements) from a datacenter?
    Which datacenter? What configuration?

    Would like to know which datacenter and if they can meet the HW requirements.

    Agree with above statements. Please confirm.

    I will help him about hardware (with GPU rtx 2070 super), datacenter and how to set up a node. He is my friend.

    Hi every öne, you can sure that I will meet all requirements as node handbook and help of my friend. Thanks to all noderunners.

    but still what kind of data center? I would like to know

    We use data center for colocation, only reason for data center is fast İnternet bandwith. I pay about 350 usd/month for 200mbit upload download speed. Its very expensive here to get fast İnternet connection.

    If you have a GPU in your datacentre it is oke.
    If you don’t then it is your responsibility since it is a REQUIREMENT.

    Without GPU it will produce to many time outs and thus not complying with the requirements with consequences

    @Robbie84 you re right, i am a node runner too with 2070 super, i told @zafer that it is a must to run a node. And he will buy a new 2070 super too. Thanks for your comments.

    But you don’t buy it if he runs in a dc though.
    You rent it.

    No, you dont rent, it is colocation. You buy all components of pc and put it in a box in dc. Just to get fast internet, you just buy internet connection. Thats all.
