The estimated requirements for CPU,RAM,Disk and Bandwidth based on transactions per second:
Reasoning: Helps with our future expansaion plans.
Requirement: R/W Latency requirements for RAM and fractional reserves (storing contract states).
Reasoning: Most of us are planning on starting small and then increasing amount of ram as the need increases. Also many are looking ahead to beyond 4TB solutions and having the R/W, latency requirements will help us plan for and test alternative solutions such as M.2 SSD drives.
Requirement: R/W Latency requirements for EOSIO storage (ipfs).
Reasoning: Although not being released until later this year, having some indication of the requirements will help us build base solutions that can scale without having to replace existing equipment.
Requirement: Parrallel processing cluster R/W & latency requirements.
Reasoning: At some point we expect to have multiple servers processing transastions in parallell. It would be good to know at what speeds & latency that communication needs to occur.
Requirement: Based on previous experience (BitShares, Steem) and based on your best guesses on how quick EOS.io will scale after launch… What bandwidth do you guesstimate will be needed for:
• EOS Storage (ipfs)
• Query Services
- Do we have a date when EOSIO Storage / IPFS functionality will be available? Also… Do we know anything on how it will work?
- What is the minimum amount of EOS to be staked for BP?
- Will block.one offer us help with planning and performing benchmark testing before the start?
- Would there ever be a reason why EOS could perhaps send certain tasks for processing by the GPU?
- Are there any other software development requirements as it relates to initial launch besides compiling and installing EOS?
- In regards to staking for ram. How do we calculate how much ram someone gets for 1 token? Will the calculations be based both on number_of_staked_tokens and on total_amount_of_ram, both of which can change?
- Are you planning on releasing something in depth in regards to Regional scaling?
- Do we have any information on how we will lock down bandwidth for the IPFS based on staked tokens?
