What is Blockchain?
Blockchain is a distributed, decentralized database — and this database is shared among the nodes of a specific network. The key difference between a regular database and a blockchain is the way in which the data is structured. Blockchain collects data in blocks, which then are added to the chain built out of them. The data stored on chain is replicated among tens of nodes, which are connected peer2peer with one other. This makes it very unlikely to be manipulated, hacked or unreachable, as there are just too many nodes operating at any given time.
How is a transaction verified in the blockchain?
Blockchain-based applications are called decentralized applications (Dapps). The front-end facing applications create a smart contract (transaction), which then must be verified. If the verification process is successful, it gets added to the transaction block. A transaction can only be added to the chain when a set of criteria is met. The verification process depends on the protocol sourcing the network.
What is Proof of Work (PoW) protocol?
In a network operating PoW protocol, the transactions are validated by a mining node. The verifying nodes that operate in a PoW based network are solving a mathematical problem. They mostly use the computing power of a GPU or CPU to solve these problems. Very often, mining nodes use 100% of the available compute power. This method requires servers to be equipped with very powerful GPUs, which need to run continually.
Due to OVHcloud's commitment to sustainability, we do not allow validation ("Mining") on "PoW powered" networks.
What is Proof of Stake (PoS) protocole?
With a blockchain operating on a PoS network, the validation process is managed by the network of validators that share a common interest in maintaining network security & transparency, as they own operational coins in the system. These "validators" operate a pool of validating nodes, which stake a portion of their coin assets — thus pledging the validity of the transaction. There are many iterations of the PoS protocol, which vary depending on the functionality that needs to be achieved. Looking at the underlying infrastructure, the crucial aspect to focus on is that with this type of verification, the nodes are not necessarily using the full resource's capacity. Consequently, this should ease some of the restrictions put in place by cloud service providers.
Our aim is to provide an open cloud that is reversible and interoperable. This belief empowers our 1.6M customers across 140 countries, as we continue to build on our global footprint of 33 datacentres with the latest generation of private, public and web cloud services.
We have developed an integrated and sustainable business model where we design cutting edge technology to assemble our water-cooled servers that are housed in our purpose-built datacentres. This value chain enables us to offer the best market prices when comparing like for like performance. Plus, our transparent price book means that our customers can predict their costs and won’t get bill surprises!
Our 32 Tbps fibre-optic global network across 38 points of presence with real-time monitoring and anti-DDoS is optimised for stability, redundancy and availability keeps our customers businesses operating efficiently and safely. It was this network that repelled one of the largest DDoS attacks ever recorded.
