Tangle Bay goes USA

Flag of the United States

Not only with IOTA a lot happens, but also with Tangle Bay. With the latest changes of one of our providers (Hetzner), we now have the possibility to offer the community an access point in the USA and together with the ICNS members, also provide nodes there.


The new location will generally result in a structural change in the cluster. In the future, all users will be assigned to the site they are closest to. This way we reduce the latency enormously and still everyone benefits from maximum availability. If a site fails, regardless of whether it is a load balancer or a node, the traffic is automatically redirected to the other sites.

This is only possible because the community supports ICNS so actively and the more members ICNS gets, the more we can assign nodes to the individual networks to make them even better and more secure.


Following you will get a small statistic, which resources Tangle Bay currently owns and uses:

3

LOAD BALANCERS

15

MAINNET NODES

4

COMNET NODES

8

IOTA V2 NODES


Furthermore, the new location now offers us the possibility to operate another entry node, so that we also create a backup for possible failures there, independent of location and provider.


In addition, we will also change our API addresses to create more clarity for new users in the future. Below you will find the list of our new addresses:
