Hardware upgrades

We’ve just completed a round of upgrades to the ADAvault hardware stack which we use to host all infrastructure we run.

Compute is now based on AMD EPYC rather than Intel as we found that the AMD offering was more competitive at this refresh, resulting in approximately 200% increase in processing power and cores available. Total storage has been doubled to 20TB of NVME SSDs. Memory has been increased 50% to around 640GB DDR5 across all instances.

In aggregate this has markedly increased the performance across the pre-production and production clusters, and we are now ready for projected growth through to 2026.

As part of this upgrade we have also enabled Mithril signers on all nodes which will enable much faster synchronisation for Cardano clients such as relays and block producers, and full node wallets like Daedalus.
