They presented at btc++ and mentioned that they have a really interesting node architecture that basically spends up nodes on demand. Different components of the node live on distributed tech. It really starts to not be a "node" any more than a publicly facing endpoint with distributed and redundant microservice infrastructure backing it like most modern tech is.
Interesting. I believe they use LDK as a framework, which is supposed to be modular, so this kind of architecture would make sense.
So then they took decentralization to another level of decentralization ? Since the parts to each node are on distributed tech? Any attack vectors in doing so granted if 1 part fails the whole node goes down??
It's actually a "cluster" of nodes. So yeah if the entire infrastructure hosting the cluster goes down, then all the nodes go down.
But if an individual node goes down, that's fine, the other nodes in the cluster can process outbound payments and accept deposits.
