At Adaizen we know that secure devices are essential for Cardano's ecosystem to flourish. To that purpose, we designed our stack to run on bare metal, servers we do not have to trust, but verify instead.
Check out this little bare metal beauty:

We are going to be running it as an unpublished relay node, for edge delivery of Cardano's blockchain. Oh so cool!
DDoS Cardano Stake Pool Relay Offer
Do you see that bare metal server above? If you do and you operate a Cardano stake pool, then we have a free offer for you because you took the time to read our infrastructure page, meaning you give an Ada.
That server has a 2Gbps bonded network that is DDoS protected by Corero. Every Cardano stake pool should have at least one DDoS protected relay node that their signing server connects to, well now you can have just that, completely gratis.
That server can accommodate 16 relay connections, at 8 GB ram each, without breaking a sweat.
Our only condition on this offer is this cannot be your pools only relay node.
That's the catch, make sure you have one or more relay nodes that you manage for your Cardano stake pool. Our reason for this is we cannot, nor will we be liable for your pool going down because of any single failure, like this single failure point DDoS protected relay node going down, be it natural or humankind.
If you would like a DDoS relay container for your Cardano stake pool send an email to:
ddos-relay-node at adaizen.com
First come first served,
16 0 openings remaining as of July 19th, 2019
Sorry, we're at capacity on this single machine, we are evaluating deploying multiple DDoS machines specifically for pool operators to supplement their stake pool relay nodes, just like the one above, same condition would apply, can't be your pools only relay node.
