We’re ThetaBros.com, and we can’t wait to for you to start a Guardian / Edge node. The vision is important to us. We’re eager to map out the needs of the network, and provide the necessary tools to achieve a successful deployment. Since the launch of the Theta Network, network operators like you have had challenges in reaching successful launch, and operationally stable of production, that’s why we delivered tailored qualified solutions here, tested since the launch of the Theta Network.

Next level upgrade dedicated to only blockchain transactions.

Why would you want to upgrade to NVME?

​One thing noticed over in the last 2 years is that peek moments of transactions, slow nodes fell off the network and went into Syncing, fast nodes like ours experienced 50% duty cycle or "disk busy" in those moments, as the transactions grow so will the requirements of your disks to keep up, projected transactions for NFT's alone is 600,000.


A standard upgrade dual use boot / blockchain transactions.

The basic disk needed for running a node, nothing special here just fully tested fully qualified SSD drive, writes as of June 2021 was 425 TBW with an estimated life remaining of 75%.

NOTE* PRO 860 grade SSD drives have a max life span between 300-4,800 TBW, Complete details

Z420 and Z620 have limited ram upgrades.
Z820 series workstations are next level server quality machines with max ram spec of 256GB of ram.

Service Challenges in Production

System Redundancy

What you need to consider is down time unless you deploy redundant nodes as windows updates will always be a problem. The solution is not to disable windows updates, its to configure two systems to run independently with "Restart this device as soon as possible when required Enabled" and the second node to be Disabled, this results in both machines not rebooting same day.


Network Monitoring


With years of experience in enterprise data storage and networking, constant monitoring and trend data is critical in keeping on top of your infrastructure health. At ThetaBros.com, we combine our insights and skills to transform your busy work into processes and strategies, that yield automated reports and nonfictions.


Custom Server Installations

Building a enterprise grade machine to run Guardian / Elite Edge node is possible,
we
only run and test with HP hardware.

Why HP hardware platform?

Simple! 1000's of test hours per year of experience that has built decades of knowledge and trust with a quality Tier 1 vendor providing next day business SLA for replacement parts on supported systems.
