Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I would like to know a disk space usage for Europe extract (Nominatim, tile server, both data structures and rendered tiles). I have currently map server with an european country extract and I tried to estimate disk usage for Europe. My estimation is a very big number (about 1,3 - 1,4TB!). Is it possible? Am i wrong? Can someone correct or confirm my estimation?

My calculation's ways are:

  1. Europe surface to country surface ratio
  2. Europe osm.pbf file to country osm.pbf file ratio

What zoom levels (for rendered tiles) are you interested in? Do you want to pre-render all tiles but only render those tiles that people want on demand?

I want pre-render tiles because i had problems with country extract when tiles wasn't pre-rendered (pink tiles appeared). I think pre-rendering tiles to 16 zoom level for one country and to 14/15 (or even less) zoom level for other countries is a sufficient solution for me.
