Block Producer Candidate on the Telos Blockchain Network — 21zepyhr1111

Our Core Technology

21Zephyr’s motto is to design, build and operate high-density data centers for verification of transactions on Blockchains. With our hard work, we make the Blockchains we support stronger. Telos-21Zephyr has been a Telos Launch Group Partner in helping launch the Telos Blockchain right from its early stages. Our team consists of experienced software personnel and influential members of the crypto community in Midwest, US. It was a well-balanced combination and best of both worlds to be a perfect Block Producer Candidate. We have shown incredible performance during the last few months with exceptional consistency and involvement.

Our mission is to advance the strength of Telos Blockchain and position it in the right way for both developers through transparent, efficient technology, and the community by enhancing community awareness, education and empowerment through educational articles, videos, resources, and meetups. Please contact us through one of the social mediums if you feel your team’s goals are aligned with us and we are always looking for collaboration some great projects.

Infrastructure

We believe in excellence and reliability when it comes to our data center management. We use Amazon Web Service Cloud computing (AWS) as the backbone of our network. AWS offers secure and reliable up times for our datacenter, making 21Zephyr a consistent and effective data center to trust with block production. Our state of the art facility and data architecture provides redundancy, DDOS protection, and top class node security to ensure that our node is always up and working to advance and secure the Telos blockchain. We have plans down the road in our future phases where we envision our servers on bare metal in the top-tier data centers in Chicago which we believe would add diversity and pave way for true decentralization to the Telos Blockchain as well. We constantly update and maintain our infrastructure to maintain the consistency and be on par with the industry best practices and being on the cloud in our initial phases greatly helps us to do so.

At the core, we have a load balancer with Patroneos running in front of it. Patroneos is specifically designed for the EOSIO nodes in order to provide a layer of protection against the Denial of Service attack vectors. This would ultimately drop the bad actors and forward any valid requests for processing to our Full nodes. At the second level, we have multiple servers expanding according to the requirement, the non-producing full nodes, with published API endpoints and serve the Telos Blockchain Network, developers and its users.

At the third level, we have the public seed node connected to trusted BPs in the network and is also available to sync. And at the core level, we have a private Block Producing server, providing one of the best performances in the network.

Our general specifications:

  • CPU: 8–16 vCPU Cores
  • Memory: 32–64GB RAM
  • Network: up to 10GB
  • Storage: 1TB SSD

We’ve backup and failover nodes syncing constantly with the blockchain and ready to produce. It automatically kicks in case of a system failure or, fired up for producing during system maintenance and upgrades.

All of our environment is sealed off and private for access, with the best possible practices. Additionally, as Block Producers, we provide nodes and support both the testnet and stagenet versions of the network, for constant tests and updates and are always active and enthusiastic for improvements. Please shoot any questions you have in our telegram channel and please vote 21zephry1111 as your block producer for the Telos Blockchain Network.

Core Technology 核心技术

21Zephyr 致力于设计,建立,并运营基于区块链认证的高密度的数据中心。通过不断努力,使得我们的区块链变得更易用。Telos-21Zephyr, 作为Telos启动合作伙伴,在Telos项目初期就为其提供了帮助并建立了合作。我们的团队成员包括了富有经验的软件工程师,以及在美国中西部地区区块链界极具影响力的成员。因此,我们相信Telos-21Zephyr应作为Block Producer (超级节点,也称BP)候选人,拥有绝佳的团队配置平衡。在过去的数月之中,我们向业界展示了我们一向的高水准、稳定的参与。

我们的使命是持续发展Telos区块链,将其展现在开发者和社区之中 — 它既要透明、高效,也要通过文章、视频、资源和线下会面,促进区块链意识、普及区块链教育。如果您的团队有着相同的目标,您可以随时通过社交网络联系到我们,我们十分乐意与您的优质的项目展开全方位的合作。

基础设施

我们坚信我们的数据中心管理是高效、可靠的。我们使用AWS或亚马逊云服务(AWS Cloud Computing)作为我们网络的主干。AWS为数据中心提供了安全可靠的运行中心,使得21Zephyr作为数据中心可以稳定高效地参与区块生产。我们设计了冗余的架构与数据结构,与此同时我们提供了,DDOS防护,和一流的节点安全 — 这些特征将保证我们的节点连续不断地运行并保证Telos区块链的安全性。在将来的计划中,我们预见我们的节点将在一流的芝加哥数据中心中 — 我们将会为促进Telos区块链的去中心化努力前行。我们不断更新与维护我们的基础设施以便提供稳定的、业内最高水准的服务标准。在当前的初步阶段中,在云端服务将帮我们实现这一点。

我们的技术核心是拥有一个负载平衡器以及Patroneos。Patroneos是专门为为EOSIO节点设置的,保护其不受拒绝服务向量攻击。此项的目标是丢弃不好的请求,并将有效的请求发送至我们的完整节点。在更高一级上,我们有多台服务器来满足需求,它们是不作生产的完整节点,并提供api接入点来服务Telos链网络,开发者,及用户。

在第三级上,我们有连接至可信赖的超级节点的公共种子节点,并随时可以同步。在核心级别上,我们拥有一台私有的区块生产服务器,提供网络中最高质量的服务。

我们的总体参数:

  • CPU:8–16个虚拟CPU
  • 内存:32–64 GB 内存
  • 网络:最高可达10GB
  • 储存:1TB SSD固态硬盘

我们拥有备份和冗余了节点,并使它们时刻与区块链保持同步,随时待命生产。当系统故障,或系统日常维护时,它们会自动启动并运作。

我们所有的环境都是封闭的、私有的。此外,作为超级节点,我们提供节点以及支持测试网络和stagenet测试网络,我们欢迎长期不断的测试以及更新。若您有任何问题,欢迎在Telegram电报频道中询问我们;同时期望您支持并在Telos网络中给21zephry1111投票。
