GenesysGo: the crucial infra provider on Solana you don’t know about


The growing importance of a decentralised, censorship resistant RPC Layer

The need for a high throughput, reliable and decentralised storage

AR Cost, FIL Cost, Google Big Table Cost
  • Open sourced; over 179 repositories, 10,000 forks and a community of tens of thousands available to provide support
  • Resilient and adaptable; no singular point of failure that could lead to data loss and can be integrated with smart contracts to protect stored data against malicious intents
  • Performant; cluster is so fast that a finished block can be ingested, stored and served live requests against it before the next block is propagated
  • Scalable; largest cluster ever tested successfully stored 10b unique objects, making it suitable for Solana’s fast blocktimes (146m blocks at time of writing)
  • Efficient mapping algorithm CRUSH; it allows for decentralisation of location for data on an individual byte level

A decentralised cloud computing environment
