[AIT2] Openbitlab Node ๐Ÿงช

Hello Aptos Community from Openbitlab team :wave:

:family: About us
We are five crypto builders with 6 years of experience in network validation, who designed professional infrastructures to guarantee high uptime and responsiveness during critical updates.

We started block production activities in Lisk, the first-ever delegated-proof-of-stake network, and then we expanded our infrastructure to support innovative networks like Tezos, Polkadot, Kusama, and Cosmos-based chains (E-Money, Kujira, StaFi).
We are active on 15+ blockchains, with $20m+ in staked value.
We are following Aptos for months, supporting the network by running a node.

:chains: Our Infrastructure
LXC container on bare metal dedicated server on Hetzner farm in Falkenstein - Germany: AMD Ryzen 32 core, 132gb ram, 3.5TB NVME Datacenter edition, 1Gbs bandwidth.

Our infrastructure also includes a backup server ready to replace our main server and located on another farm.

Our servers integrate various protection features:

  • Zabbix agents connected to our Zabbix servers for real-time monitoring
  • Encrypted disk, to protect data from physical access
  • UFW firewall, to block access to unused ports
  • Fail2Ban, to block incorrect authentications attempts
  • SSH access through simple user (no direct root access allowed)
  • Periodically change of the root password
  • Custom monitoring tool for Aptos (GitHub - openbitlab/srvcheck: Srvcheck helps you to monitor blockchain nodes)
  • Additional monitoring with Prometheus+Grafana
