I just got a Home Assistant Green a couple of days ago and have InfluxDB and Grafana installed on it.
Since the HA Green only has 32GB of flash storage and HA is infamous for destroying SD cards on raspberry pi’s I was wondering how bad you guys think it is for the HA Green?
I wrote to Nabu Casa and they recommended checking with the community so here I am.
I’ve pasted the response from Nabu Casa below.
"Because the Green is using eMMC and not an SD card, it will be more resilient and reliable when compared to using an SD card on a Pi. I don’t think there would be an immediate concern running the add-ons on the Green.
That said, while eMMC is more reliable than SD, is not immune to wear. If it is an option for you, I would recommend to run InfluxDB on a separate device as it is meant for storage of long-term data. You would minimize the risk of wear to the Home Assistant Green’s internal storage but also have scalability and potentially better performance, as InfluxDB can be resource-intensive.
But everyone has their own opinions on this. It might be good to check in with the community at the forums or in the #general channel in our HA Discord to get other’s input and experience, as I don’t personally use Influxdb or Grafana."
