Welcome to the Filecoin documentation for Storage Providers.
Looking for Lotus?
Lotus documentation has moved to lotus.filecoin.io (opens new window)
Storage Provider in the Filecoin network are in charge of storing, providing content and issuing new blocks. Content in this section will help you to:
- Understand how mining works and what different types of providers exist.
- Learn how storage providers get rewards when doing their job properly, but also slashed when they are unable to honor deals they have made.
- Learn about different mining architectures.
- Setup and run a high performant Lotus Miner (opens new window).
The documentation you will be reading assumes you are familiar with the documentation in the Get started section, have a general grasp of how Filecoin works and are familiar with Filecoin node software and tooling.
Running a successful storage provisioning operation on Filecoin has high hardware requirements and, apart from a strong familiarity with Filecoin, requires experience in systems deployment and administration.
