/u/697492835909250419Full Node size approaching 1 TB?Ethereum

My mainnet full node currently exceeds 850GB. Some of that is ancient data, which can be put on a different drive than the rest of the chaindata, but even without ancient, it’s around ~700GB. In early March it wasn’t yet 300GB. My guess is that all the DeFi activity is causing the chain to grow much more quickly.

My big fear is mainnet full nodes approaching 1TB. I suspect this will wipe out a non-trivial number of full nodes. Firstly, my impression is that DappNode and Avado are running on 1TB hard drives, meaning that they won’t be able to run a full mainnet node anymore, but I also suspect many others are likely running their nodes on 1TB drives. Without resorting to upgrading to larger SSDs or RAID setups, they’ll drop out, too.

Is this as big an issue as I think it is? Alternatively, is my node unusually large?
