Weekly Update: W/C 17th August, 2020

As part of our ongoing commitment to transparency and development in the open, our founder writes weekly updates to the Edge community. This is the 74th of these updates, originally posted to Telegram.

Hi everyone đź‘‹

Further discussion about our in plan database service was had, specifically focused on how it could link up with API and make use of storage for an instant-on, persisted API+DB solution. Exciting developments in the architecting phase and one of the key future services that we see for the network.

The network-native replacement for Consul moved on significantly, with end to end Stargate > GW > Host updates now in place, and processing through the line taking less than a second (vs. 30+ seconds under Consul). This is the final portion of the first phase of removing Consul as a dependency. We’ve moved to using RPC calls to set and update CDN config and synchronise subscription settings far faster than the previous approach.

Core infrastructure and deployment changes are ongoing.

Work on refining the processes for CDN subscriptions and payment processing pushed forward, streamlining of the backend and removing some complexity.

Work on new features for CDN progressed well, including some of the new audio concepts and the continuation of the watermark feature discussed previously. Work on further optimisation of the build process to further reduce the footprint of CDN also progressed.

We engaged a sales lead for Edit, the editorial interfaces built on our tech and running in the network. This is part of a two pronged approach to sales as move to in to the last quarter of the year. We’re kicking this off next week.
