SWAG Stake pool has chosen to build a block producer and four relay nodes on the Virtual Private Servers (VPS). We identified the most efficient VPS providers which supported our efforts of providing minimal downtime and ensuring 99.999% reliability to our delegators. Each relay is strategically located in a different region in the event an outage should occur in a specific location. All nodes are configured with Elastic (static) IPs addresses, providing more reliability at a nominal rate to in our business strategy.
Hardware & Software Specifications Replicated on All Four Nodes:
· 8 GB of RAM
· 50 GB SSD
· Elastic IP Address
· Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal Fossa)
· All of our servers have their own dedicated firewall to provide an additional layer of security. The block producing (core) node firewall has a unique set of ports open in its Access Control List (ACL) to authorize sessions from addresses.
· SWAG Stake pool has created a Key Management Server to store cold keys and other private keys offline, further hardening our network.
· Remote access gives us the ability to monitor, troubleshoot, and provide additional support anywhere in the world at a moment’s notice.
