OnFinality, a multi-chain infrastructure provider, adds Auto Expand Storage to their Dedicated Nodes service to help developers expand their node storage size as needed.
OnFinality is a blockchain infrastructure platform that saves web3 builders time and makes developers’ lives easier. We deliver scalable API endpoints for the biggest blockchain networks and empower developers to automatically test, deploy, scale and monitor your own blockchain nodes within minutes.
“We’re developers ourselves and we know how time-consuming node management can be. By engaging the new Auto Expand Storage feature, developers can accomplish more without necessarily having to spend more time on node management!”
— Daniel Vulinovich, Product Manager at OnFinality
We’ve recently added Auto Expand Storage to our Dedicated Nodes service to help developers save time and build faster!
Benefits of the New Feature
- Automatically expands your node storage as needed
- Saves developers time on having to constantly check on and manually upgrade their node storage size
- Empowers developers to focus on the core product
- Ensures a consistent uptime while increasing operational efficiency
How Auto Expand Storage Works
When the nodes storage reaches 85% utilisation, the storage size will be automatically increased by 10%.
You will be notified of changes to your storage size and any change to the pricing of your nodes.
How to Activate Auto Expand Storage
When deploying a node, toggle “Auto Expand Storage” on.
When the node is running, Auto Expand Storage can be enabled or disabled at any time via Node Actions.
The node’s Activity Logs will show when a node has been auto expanded, and an email will be sent to the node’s creator.
- Public RPC Nodes
Auto Expand Storage is enabled for all public RPC nodes. We will wait until all other RPC nodes in that cluster are healthy before expanding to reduce downtime.
- Validators and Collators
Auto Expand Storage is not available for Validators and Collators as it will restart the node and affect your validation reputation. We recommend that you schedule and manually action storage expansion for Validators and Collators.
