Home hosted dedicated hardware (bare metal)
Operating a Flux Node from home is a recommended option as it not only eliminates the cost of renting a server but also provides complete control over the hardware and network setup. It contributes to scaling up the web3 cloud infrastructure, which is the very purpose of the Flux Network!
A bare metal server is a computer used to host a Flux Node via your home internet. It provides access to the full performance of the hardware and allows for the installation of a hypervisor (more on that later), which can enable the operation of up to 8 Flux Nodes on the same hardware if you decide running one node is not enough!
