DADI has rebranded to Edge. Find out more.

Weekly update: 10th May, 2019

As part of our ongoing commitment to transparency and development in the open, we are now providing weekly updates to our community, drawn from internal all-team updates. This is the ninth of these updates, originally posted to Telegram.

It’s Friday! The sun is shining again… and we’re busy! ☀️ (Like always!)

This week saw the team take to the stage at the PPA festival in Tobacco Dock in East London, talking on a variety of themes including blockchain, AI and headless content management technology.

Paul spoke along with Eduardo as well as our advisor Rob Belgrave from Wirehive, and the talks were very well received.

We launched a voting site for the festival, built on our tech: https://ppacoveroftheyear.co.uk/

And will be following that up with a site for the organisation itself, which will be launched in the network in June.

We’ve progressed a promising lead in the connected devices space, which is focused on extending and rebuilding their platform on our stack and helping them to scale (by providing processing capacity for their devices in the network).

We’re also working with a startup that’s going live on CrowdCube in the next few weeks. And we’ve started early conversations with a well known lifestyle company based out of London. Both early stage, but great opportunities.

Ravi has knocked our brand refresh out of the park. I’ll be able to share this with you all very soon.

On network developments, Meher finished the telemetry service for the network in Go, and deployed it to test.network

We completed an auto SSL certificate generation service: Gateways now create free SSL certificates using Lets Encrypt for all apps deployed to the network.

This means that any domain that you configure against your apps in my.dadi.cloud will automatically run under SSL in the network. This is BOTH for the subdomains we generate for you, and also for your own domains mapped in to the network.

We’ll be writing about this in more detail soon.

We completed auto-deployment for Stargate and BGP is now fully containerised within Stargate, meaning that we’re completely abstracted from the host operating system.

We also completed development on a Golang wrapper for API. Documentation is being written over the next week or so and once done we will be releasing it as an Open Source package.

We finished a Consul replicate deployment - a big step in getting the network explorer to persist service data. This is the second to last thing to do be done before we can deploy the multi data centre update to edge.network

You may have noticed nodes appearing multiple times in the explorer: this is a bug whereby a service that’s written to network when a Host connects is being replicated by nearby Stargate. For example Paris’s service is being replicated to Amsterdam. We’re not sure why this is happening, but are investigating. There’s no performance impact on the network.

And that’s it for today! I have to run to pick up my cat form the vets before it closes, but will be online later to answer any questions that you may have on the above.

Enjoy your weekends.
