Kusama is a canary network (a live test bed) wherein developers can test new blockchains before deploying on Polkadot. However, Kusama is an independent standalone network which is quite fast and scalable. It is said that it takes only seven days to vote on a referendum and eight days to get it implemented as compared to a month for each referendum on Polkadot. Kusama is relatively faster and gives priority to being a live test bed for blockchain innovation. Features and projects tend to graduate from kusama and migrate to the Polkadot network. Kusama is highly interoperable and it achieves it by cross-chain communication between different parachains connected to the same relay chain. It achieves it through the XCMP(Cross-chain Message Passing) protocol which enables communication across parachains or any different consensus system.
The right network and a capable infrastructure system are essential for staking and validator services. RadiumBlock's white label validator node services provide a tailored experience created for the end user and managed explicitly by the RadiumBlock network team. Our data centers are diversely spread geologically with an experienced engineering team providing monitoring services 24/7/365. Validators can run on fault tolerant server clusters in our data centers around the world, AWS or Digital Ocean. Our snapshot failover mechanism services combat data loss, network failures, geographic disaster recovery by instantly restoring the latest snapshot as soon as it detects failure. RadiumBlock snapshot storage provides fast, pruned tree branches so you can quickly recover from any vulnerability or attack without risk of compromising your reputation or stake.
Using RadiumBlock's "Node as a Service" option, you can run a node on any of our listed Proof of Stake blockchain networks without the hassle of finding the right hosting, setting up servers, keeping up with software synchronization or maintenance.
Our nodes are all hosted on highly secure cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services, Digital Ocean and fault tolerant server clusters in our data centres around the world. We guarantee a highly redundant and dependable infrastructure that is monitored around the clock, seven days a week. We have also successfully operated our own Proof of Stake validators for emerging blockchain networks using the same infrastructure and capabilities.
The RadiumBlock team cut its teeth in web2 with around 20 years of business infrastructure management experience.
