Hi @HarishKumarLobster,

For this kind of storage you have two options, using spaces or creating a very large Droplet.

The first option sounds like a better solution. Spaces is an S3-compatible object storage service that lets you store and serve large amounts of data. Each Space is a bucket for you to store and serve files. The free, built-in Spaces CDN minimizes page load times, improves performance, and reduces bandwidth and infrastructure costs.

The second option is just using a Droplet with the same spaces. Now, the Droplets offered for new accounts are not big enough so you’ll need to contact DigitalOcean’s Support on the matter and ask them if it’s possible to create such big Droplet.

An alternative is to use a Storage-Optimized Droplet. You still need to request the possibility for it but it can serve your purpose. As I can see the is a Droplet that offers 32 GBs of RAM, 600 GB of Space and 6TB of Bandwidth. The beginning monthly cost is 250$ dollars

Regarding the cost, even if you use it only 6 hours a day, you’ll still be charged as the Droplet is still on DigitalOcean’s infrastructure taking up resources. You can read more about that here
