Overview of Filecoin Storage Provider (SP) components and how Boost fits in an SP stack
The Lotus stack is responsible for running a Filecoin full chain node, handling sector lifecycle, storing sectors, sector sealing, sector proving, handling wallets, and more. You can read about the Lotus components at https://docs.filecoin.io/storage-provider/architecture/lotus-components/
The Boost stack is responsible for handling storage and retrieval requests, transferring data, indexing data, announcing data to network indexers, and ensuring that clients can retrieve their data once it is stored on the SP's infrastructure.
