The first invoices have been paid :)
Published on December 17, 2021 by XRPL Labs

The first invoices have been paid, the network gear to connect the new machines has been purchased from UBNT and servers have been ordered at Creoserver. A big payment has been made to Creoserver as a 50% deposit for the order of the amount of Full History and Non Full History servers donated by all of you 😘

The first servers have been delivered (most still have to be delivered) and have been installed in the past days. They are already live and adding capacity to xrplcluster.com.

Thanks to the extra capacity, we see faster response times for end users & a lower amount of temp. node failures.

Also, we now have sufficient overcapacity to ramp up our testing efforts, to be able to identify more bugs and issues to be fixed in the XRP Ledger node source code.

Wonderful news! How many machines will here be added in the end? Any idea?

Based on the donations we'll be able to add about 5, 6 Full History nodes, and about 5, 6 Non Full History nodes. That adds around 30% capacity to the cluster, which makes a huge difference for load balancing, stand by failover capacity & the ability to take out one or more nodes for "under load" testing & debugging. This helps us help core developers to address issues & scaling in the source code of XRPL nodes.
