·The X-profit validator eqipments
The X-profit validator team consists of ambitious young people with more than four years of experience in the IT field. We gained our experience at EPAM in the positions of DevOps (Leonid) and Project Manager (Nikolai). Our goal is to ensure the stable operation of the validator and the safety of delegate funds. To do this, we use the best equipment on the market and our experience. DecimalChain is our first experience in the field of validation, and every day we learn new things and develop together with the network. Our team had experience in server administration, and we decided to try ourselves as a validator.
The X-profit validator technical equipment
To ensure the stable operation of the validator, we deployed software and masternode on a variety of servers and data centers, and also conducted an analysis, selecting the best offers on the server equipment rental market for the X-profit validator. The developers of the DecimalChain network have taken care of a special software - Decimal Guard - to protect the funds of delegates, which we use in our work. As in any big business, it was not without bitter experience, but we learn from our mistakes and constantly improve the quality and quantity of servers for protection and validation. Today we use three servers for validation (one main and two backup) and the same number for protection. Validators are located in data centers:
For security servers, we also chose Linode, but in conjunction with DigitalOcean and AWS. When choosing server data centers, we referred to our experience with these services. We make every effort to quickly make network updates, which happen quite often. In case of an unforeseen situation, we will be able to restore the validator operation quickly (less than two hours) due to configured backup servers, as well as an automatic backup system. To collect information and monitor the work, we use a service from Amazon - CloudWatch Logs.
We are ready to solve any problems and tasks that arise on our way. The X-profit team is always open to new ideas and cooperation. You can directly contact the leader of the team — Nikolai Shilkin.
