The Blockdaemon Platform
Scale your Blockchain Solution Quickly. Continuously connecting to any blockchain network grows more complicated and costly over time, due to block-height, size and peer connections. Blockdaemon allows you to orchestrate complex networks across multiple clouds and datacenters without costly and time-consuming overhead. Deploy testnets and mainnets and ensure maximum decentralization while connecting existing data reservoirs via API.
The Blockdaemon Node Marketplace provides the comprehensive list of protocols, add-ons, and services that are available on the Blockdaemon Platform. Find the right fit for your application. New protocols are being added regularly.Visit the Marketplace
Blockdaemon Platform Features
With just a few clicks, you can launch a private network that is configured to your needs. Feel confident knowing that you do not need to waste time worrying about maintenance or upgrades to your nodes by having a pulse on your network health with monitoring reports. See how easy it is to deploy with Blockdaemon. Collaborate with partners quickly with an easy invitation system.
Maintain Network Decentralization Effortlessly
Blockdaemon is the only multi-cloud, multi-geo infrastructure platform for blockchain nodes, and we bring this capability to each network we support. Blockdaemon allows deploying on multiple clouds, in any supported region, with just three clicks. This way, you can help the network you support and connect to maintain its vision of optimized decentralization across infrastructure providers and geography.
Custom Configurations and Branded Experiences
Blockdaemon offers co-branded and custom configured experiences to orchestrate complete networks. With current live partners such as GCoin, Citizens Reserve, Shell, IBM, and others, we provide a unified, whole-org, collaborative rollout of admin layer and invite system to manage a complete network.
Providing the Option for Availability Globally
Our engineers have extensively tested availability zones to ensure reliable node launches — problematic zones have been stripped away. Blockdaemon allows launching on multiple different continents with new regions being added regularly. Geographically dispersed dedicated machines help keep the network decentralized and Blockdaemon monitors where the nodes are running.
Personal Nodes for Strong Security
When you purchase a node through Blockdaemon, your node is yours exclusively. You’ll get the benefit of a dedicated machine without the management headaches of owning your own. Blockdaemon lets you add additional nodes quickly and easily, wherever you may want to. Your node has its own unique address, and its own unique connection and authentication key. These are not reused, and ensure that your node is not open and exposed to anyone on the internet.
Monitoring and Alerting
Your node is monitored throughout its lifecycle with our comprehensive tooling. Core machine-level metrics — CPU load, bandwidth, available disk space, memory — are monitored in real time, with alerting thresholds set internally so the platform can automatically remediate any errors before they occur. We monitor Blockchain specific metrics: Block height to make sure the node is always in sync with the rest of the blockchain; Peer count to make sure the node is always well connected with it’s peers.
Automatic Healing Avoiding Downtime
Nodes themselves present additional key measures that must be watched, and Blockdaemon watches those for faults as well — peer counts, block height, transaction pools. Our experience with multiple protocols allows us to monitor, repair and replace nodes where protocol-level errors may occur. When protocol updates are required, we make sure to apply them in advance so you see no disruption of service.
Blockdaemon uses multiple cloud providers across many geographic regions and networks. This issues nodes are spread out to ensure decentralization and automatically rebalanced nodes if they are too concentrated in one area. We use our own managed data centers, private clouds, and the major public clouds.
Blockdaemon supports customers that want to run private blockchains on closed networks. Nodes can be run on internal data centers or networks not accessible by the internet. Usually, for customers that want to store private or proprietary information. We can still insure proper decentralization and create snapshots of the blockchain for data integrity and validation.
Try Blockdaemon and launch your nodes in minutesTry it Out
Blockdaemon’s cloud-based nodes-as-a-service offerings make it extremely simple to launch projects on Stellar. We’re excited to see Blockdaemon support projects with a global decentralized network management tool and continue to fuel the growth and maturation of the blockchain industry as a whole.
Blockdaemon makes it easy to deploy a public node in just three clicks. They’re the foremost multi-cloud platform solution that supports the leading blockchain protocols. Offerings like Blockdaemon’s truly drive adoption by providing an easy way to support public chains and help secure networks. We look forward to our partnership into the far future!
We wanted to be able to deploy a node into one of our technology partners in an hour, that was the goal. We were able to do that and we exceeded expectations by deploying within 15 minutes.
