reliable Stake pool Infrastructure
State of the Art Stake Pool Infrastructure
Our network of 8 relays is distributed across the globe in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. These are distributed across 3 seperate Microsoft Azure tenants. Additionally, we have two separate reputable public clouds that we can move block producer roles over to in the event of a Microsoft Azure outage. On top of the “regular” Cardano node relays and block producers, we also have a Preprod testnet stake pool, preprod and mainnet Mithril signer servers, a Sundaeswap “Scooper” and DripDropz “Droperator”. And finally, we have “bare metal” servers onsite as backup servers that can also take over all stake pool operations. These are(all on UPS battery, with solar panels for power and generator backup.
The Microsoft Azure cloud is the most geographically distributed network, with over 180 datacenters around the globe in around 62 regions. It has built in redundancy (power source, Internet connections, power supplies in servers, network equipment, etc.) to ensure that there are no single points of failure).
All our servers are monitored 24/7/365 to detect and protect and remediate any issues.
In the world of Cardano stake pools, AzureADA stands in a league of its own. We don’t cut corners. We don’t use cheap, sub-par equipment or services. We don’t use the “bare minimum”. We choose SAFE, SECURE, and PERFORMANT to provide you peace of mind. When it comes to financial investments, we don’t believe in “bare minimum”. We believe in MAXIMIZING earnings.
Stake Your Crypto Securely
Azure has over 100 security compliance certifications… far more than any other public cloud. Some of the most sensitive data on earth, from global governments, healthcare and financial companies, energy producers to other sensitive industries is safely housed and trusted on the Azure cloud.
Keeping Cardano Network Decentralized
Each AzureADA stake pool server is located in a different region of the world, to minimize impact if there is a large-scale geographic event, such as an earthquake, flood, or war.
Each stake pool has a dedicated block producing server, with a hot standby server ready to take over in the event of an issue.
We also use eight or more Relay servers in front of the block producers, maintaining an up-to-date copy of the block chain and being reliable partners for the Cardano blockchain community. We advertise five of them publicly and run the other three on private rings to mitigate targeted network attacks from disabling our pools.
Delegate Your Coins with Peace of Mind
The net result is a highly connected, secure, and resilient infrastructure that provides an amazingly solid stake pool. AzureADA provides more resiliency than any home-based stake pool could possibly provide, as well as almost every business’s data centers.
Staking rewards are only paid out when stake pool servers are operating as expected and we’ve taken the steps to insure maximum uptime for maximum profit.
As you can see, we have a solid solution provided to you for staking your coins with confidence and peace of mind.
