Cloud Locations

We host our Block Producer Nodes in Google and Azure cloud solutions

Our primary block producer is with Google and our backup is with Azure. Each location will have 2 EOS nodes behind a network load balancers.

Block Producing & Node Hardware

  • 8 Core Processor
  • 128GB RAM
  • 512GB internal SSD storage

Networking

16Gbps

Our networking subnets will allow for speeds upto 16Gbps.

Network Load balancing

Our nodes will be situated behind a Network load balancer that will balance all networking requests between both nodes. The Network load balancer is a pass-through load balancer and makes no changes to any of the TCP packets.

DDOS Protection

The Google load balancer will also act as our DDOS protection. We have thoroughly tested the abilities of the Google load balancer to handle a DDOS attack.

Security

Automated updates

Our servers will install security updates automatically.

Bi-annual audits

We will employ an external security consultant to carry out bi-annual security audits on our infrastructure.

No incoming ports on our block producers

Our block producers will not allow any incoming connections. This ensures our Block Producers can stay hidden from the internet whilst still synching up to the blockhain and producing blocks.

Monitoring

EOS process failure

Verifying EOS nodes are synching

Further to checking that our EOS processes are running, we will also verify that our nodes & block producers are staying in sync with the blockchain.

Fork check

We will also monitor the head_block numbers on upto 21 nodes and compare that number against our nodes and block producers to ensure we have not forked onto our own chain.

Support

VictorOps

Any outage notifications that occur on our infrastructure will be captured by our monitoring solution and send over to VictorOps to alert the current on call engineer.

Rotating team of engineers 24/7

We have will a rotating team of 3 engineers monitoring our infrastructure 24/7.

Continuous improvement

By leveraging our incident timeline we are able to record monitoring data, system actions, and human remediation. Ous team can leverage these insights to drive continuous improvement.

Transition to Bare Metal

Data Centre

Any outage notifications that occur on our infrastructure will be captured by our monitoring solution and send over to VictorOps to alert the current on call engineer.

Hypervisor Cloud

We will be installing our own bare metal hardware running hypervisors to build up our custom cloud solution.

Multi Data centre

We will scale to a multi data centre solution to become truly independently decentralized, by not having to rely on Google, Azure or Microsoft.
