XNS D2 Is the Virtual Private Datacenter

High Level Overview

With traditional cloud datacenter products, you log in to their Console, choose the nearest datacenter, create some buckets, assign permissions and upload data

With XNS D2, you design the ideal the datacenter from your facility, selecting hundreds or even thousands of Storage Provider nodes based on geolocation, performance, uptime and other relevant features.

Who Owns The “Datacenter”

D2 is a distributed, global mesh of computer storage servers hosted by individuals, businesses and customers themselves. Nodes communicate with each other and a contract server over encrypted channels. Anyone may join to earn passive income with the purchase of a license or a pre-configured node.

The network is organized as ScPrime, The Distributed Datacenter and currently has over 2000 Storage Providers all over the world providing petabytes of durable, secure capacity

The Distributed Datacenter is a mesh of storage provider nodes

How Does It Work

Customers upload data via any S3 compatible application

Customers use standard compatible apps and utilities to access the network, same as most cloud services

The Relayer  is the core control center where you configure and monitor your own Virtual Private Datacenter.

D2 is made up of thousands of global Storage Provider devices each providing an average of 25TB of performant storage

XNS Relayer User Interface

After signing up in Console, users configure a Relayer. You can download and install the Relayer on your own setup or purchase a unit from the Xa-Miner webstore which will come with a Storage Provider unit to help lower TCO over time. While most Relayers are on-prem, XNS Partners also operate centralized Relayers for customers. Learn more about the Relayer here

D2 has all the security and privacy features you expect from a cloud provider, like IAM users/groups and policies. On top, data is erasure coded and encrypted before it is sent to the DC. This is key. All traditional clouds use erasure coding to increase durability and redundancy inside single locations, negating the core strength of splitting data up. XNS D2 slivers and sends data to thousands of facilities, ensuring no Force Majeure event can ever compromise your data

XNS Relayer Identity and Access Management

All Relayers goal-seek for the highest desirable qualities from Storage Providers. Performance, Uptime, Capacity and Location are key features the internal engine continuously evaluates and chooses new Providers to use. Customers have a detailed capability to bound this process by choosing specific Region or custom parameter like Uptime.

Out of the Box

Relayer requires a reasonably performant server installation for encryption, erasure coding and metadata databasing along with cache drives to hold data prior to upload. We recommend at least 10,000 Passmark score for CPU and 32GB of performant memory. The new RelayerXM scores 30k on Passmark and can handle up to 96GB of RAM. It comes standard with both 2.5Gbe and 10Gbe network connections as well as USB4.0. Best of all, the unit does double duty as a node on the ScPrime Distributed Datacenter.

If you are new to Cloud services, the Relayer is easily understandable.
The following tutorials take users through all Relayer features

Hardware and Networking

The first step to optimal Relayer use is understanding bandwidth, hardware and network requirements. A well tuned server will deliver amazing results in pushing your data to the cloud.

User Interface and Configuration

Getting around in the Relayer is fast and friendly with a simple set of tabs at the top of your browser window.

Intro to Identity and Access Management

Configuring Buckets and Objects with user and group permissions is easy to understand with the built-in IAM tool.

Advanced Identity and Access Management

Deep dive into permissions, groups and policies

Provider Selection

Assembling a Virtual Private Datacenter starts with choosing a set of nodes. Relayer makes it easy

Connecting S3 Apps

The highest compatibility with Cloud APIs, Relayer functions as a drop-in replacement for your current workflows. We’ve done the work setting up a few apps and utilities to give you examples on how to configure

Disk Cache

Setting up disks for caching files uploaded to the Relayer is a key part of Relayer success. This instructional will give background and ideas for proper configuration.

File Manager

The File Manager is tool to monitor and configure base access to buckets and objects. This instructional covers how to set up and use buckets as well as unique features to monitor billing and use on a per user basis

Backup and Recovery

A well maintained Relayer requires the user to protect and secure a Postgres database. We cover basics and discuss high availability strategies as well as some talk about future automated backups to the XNS network

Certificates, Proxy and Domains

Providing high quality, shareable access to your data in the cloud for internal users, the public and connecting common S3 applications is easy when you tie the configuration to a proper FQDN strategy and deploy SSL
