Overview

This proposal is being made to upgrade and add to existing physical equipment that aids development support, UAT, integration, and QA tasks. These various SSD and RAM upgrades are required in order to provide a high quality testing environment on both mainnet and testnet to developers battle testing XRouter, XBridge, and XCloud services on various chains including custom chains such as Ethereum and EOS which demand abundant computing, storage, and memory resources.

Purpose and details of equipment:

  • Increase storage space on existing machines used by the team
  • Increase RAM
  • These equipment upgrades will help sustain the demands on various custom chains and services including and not limited to geth, Parity, EOS, Neo, Ripple, etc.
  • Equipment upgrades will allow us to deliver a reliable and responsive service to developers and users alike testing and building on the Blocknet protocol.

A bulk of the costs for this month’s proposal are expanding disk space, RAM, and finishing the preliminary setup of a 2U rackmount server that’ll be placed in a data center to provide high-level support for XRouter/XCloud development and testing.
