Launching Solana Query & Transact

By Bison Trails · Jul 19 2021

Highlights

  • We now offer Query & Transact read/write infrastructure for Solana. With Solana Query & Transact, you can easily access data from the Solana blockchain, verify transactions and information, and build products and services that run on Solana.
  • Our Solana Query & Transact node clusters offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee.
  • Bison Trails has been working with the Solana team for over two years, including operating one of the first validators on Solana’s Tour-de-SOL testnet.
  • We also offer secure infrastructure to run validator nodes on Solana, allowing operators to earn participatory rewards and participate in governance.


Solana: a high-performance blockchain

Solana is an open source project building a high-performance, permissionless blockchain that uses highly scalable technology to prioritize transaction throughput, the ability to process a large number of transactions in a short span of time. Solana is currently able to process more than 50,000 transactions per second.

With its high throughput capacity, Solana has seen strong interest from developers and enterprises alike. Over 250 new projects were live in the Solana ecosystem as of April 2021, including high-profile projects like NFT Marketplace Metaplex and decentralized exchange Serum. In June 2021, Solana completed a $314.15M private token sale, a percentage of which will be used to launch an incubation studio to accelerate the development of decentralized applications and platforms building on Solana.

Secure, reliable, and easy-to-use infrastructure is critical for the continued flourishing of the Solana ecosystem. Although Solana’s high throughput capacity is well-suited for many use cases including trading, it also makes Solana’s node infrastructure complex and challenging to manage. Nodes require powerful hardware, extremely high bandwidth, and significant protocol expertise to manage participation.

Bison Trails has collaborated closely with the Solana team to support the network in growing and scaling securely. We operated one of the first nodes in Tour-de-Sol, Solana’s incentivized testnet. Since mainnet beta launch, we have helped our clients manage the complexity of participation with secure, tested validator infrastructure run by seasoned protocol engineers and specialists.

Now, we are expanding our Solana offerings to include our Query & Transact read/write infrastructure to empower developers interested in building on the blockchain.


Solana Query & Transact: run reliable, secure read/write nodes to build applications and services

With Query & Transact, developers interested in building on Solana can easily run read/write nodes, access data from the blockchain, and build applications and services that connect to Solana.

Even for highly technical teams, running nodes can be an expensive, time-consuming process. It requires strong protocol expertise, staying up-to-date with the latest network changes, and scaling infrastructure to manage potential changes in throughput. These demands are particularly true for Solana read/write infrastructure, given the higher throughput capacity than other protocols.

Bison Trails’ Solana Query & Transact alleviates this challenge and makes it easier to build on Solana. Developers and enterprises interested in building applications and services connected to the Solana network can easily manage their infrastructure from a single platform, and quickly scale their infrastructure based on changing throughput requirements.
