I have several terabytes of relatively simple data, not much more complicated than the ledger storing ids, timestamps, simple metadata.
I understand ETH storage costs are rather expensive.
What are my options for storing as much data as possible off-chain to minimize costs, but still getting distributed, and fault-tolerant benefits of being on-chain, using on-chain for smart contracting on the data? How do I search for and understand strategies for doing this?
If my metadata is rather sparse, say not much more than integers and a couple other ids, and still terabytes in size, is this even possible, or is a blockchain solution a bad fit?
