What is your preliminary thoughts on how to design such a system? What do you have to take into account when developing such a system for servers hosting a distributed ledger?the meantime while we develop a redundant failover system in order to keep instances healthy and online at all times.
Could you elaborate on the planned and prepared parts? How will you set this up?Our maintenance team has planned to be available 24/7. We are prepared to setup up monitors to ring to message boards and telephones in the event of unplanned downtime.
Could you elaborate on your thoughts about the redundant failover system?Monitoring systems will be implemented in order to notify team members for the meantime while we develop a redundant failover system in order to keep instances healthy and online at all times.
We have planned to take “shifts” in the sense that ideally someone from our team would be able to perform server maintenance at any given time of the day/night. Being that we are all located in the U.S. we eventually want to move toward partnering with either other Authority Set operators or a 3rd party in order to cover times where we should be sleeping.Thank you for your application

Cody has 5 years experience running productions servers. The bulk of his experience is somewhat entry level. Cody has managed cloud infrastructure in AWS. Cody was responsible for spinning up basic Windows Server based instances for enterprise wide use to support the sales teams quoting tool. Part of this was allowing multi users same time logins, VPN connections, elastic IPs tied to instances and security group adjustments.NK02)
You state that 2 team members will perform the system administration (Brody and Cody). Could you break down their respective experience in years running production servers.
What we have discussed and planned are locking down the security groups in each providers settings (AWS and Azure.) Only allowing certain ports to be open, setting up special IP privileges and tying those into the instance security groups for the incoming connections. Changing out RSA keys each month to add another layer of extra protection in the event they get stolen. Cloudwatch monitoring set up to email us if an unknown IP accesses the instance which is currently setup.NK03)
What type of OS or network security measures would you be taking?
