I plan to use web3 server side using NodeJs with geth. For production usage, should I do a full sync or fast sync is enough?

Also, how much space do I need to store the blockchain data for each of these sync types as on today?


You can go for 'fast' sync and it will require about 21gb of space.

Basically 'light' sync is for testing and development purpose.
