Short Description: Operate RPC services for the community for July, August and September
Dwellir is a leading IaaS (infrastructure as a service) team providing RPC infrastructure to more than 25 projects in the Dotsama ecosystem. We are proposing to run geographically distributed public Astar, Shiden and Shibuya RPC API Services and providing free developer community access endpoints.
This is our Astar collator and this is our Shiden collator. These collators run on independent nodes that are different from the public RPC nodes.
Regarding the endpoint address above, they represent three different nodes that are public (each node both accepts https and wss connections).
However, in reality we have several Astar, Shiden and Shibuya nodes on different data centers as backups. E.g if you look at Telemetry and search for Dwellir on the Shiden network, you will see at least two Shiden nodes.
I am in favor of the proposal as I personally use the Dwellir Endpoints and have encountered no issues with them.
However, I do have a question regarding the proposal. I noticed that the quarterly cost for Astar/Shiden/Shibuya Parachains is $15,000. Could you please provide a breakdown of how this $15,000 is allocated among these categories:
-Provision of bare-metal machines in two European locations
-Round-the-clock monitoring of core functions, including the scaling mechanism
-Ongoing enhancements in security
-Continuous updates, upgrades, and optimizations
-Liaison with development teams (as needed)
