For both user and node operator benefit, It would be great if traffic could be delegated to different nodes based on the nodes network performance and the availability requirement of the data stored.
Data that only needs to be stored and not accessed on a regular bases stored on nodes with storage but poor upload performance. Priced with low cost storage but higher upload cost.
Data that needs high availability, send to nodes with good upload bandwidth. Charge more for storage on these nodes,
This could help make node operation on slower networks more viable as it reduces competition for low availability content while also rewarding nodes with above average performance with more high availability traffic, improving potential profitability of node operation and improving performance for customer facing services using the Tardigrade storage medium.
