Hello Permanent Community!
I’m working on the project where I need to deploy Private IPFS network and automaticly replicate data beetwen all participant nodes.
And I little bit confused should I use Private Network or IPFS Cluster or their combination?
Private network allow me to isolate my nodes from IPFS public network but it doesn’t replicate data and the only way I see to implement that it manualy(or with some script) pin hash of the file to/from all nodes.
In it’s turn ipfs-cluster allows me to replicate data but it does not isolate my network from public gateway…
So how can I combine this two features or what the best way to build Private Network with data replication?
And my second question in case of using IPFS Cluster how can I interact with the network from my NodeJS app?
Can I use “ipfs-api” module to interact with ipfs-cluster network?
Should I use for example “ipfs-cluster-ctl add myfile.txt” or “ipfs add myfile.txt” and what’s the difference between them in this case?
Thanks in Advance!
