We understand Proof of Stake

Many hosting companies only associate blockchains with energy-intensive GPU farms running Proof of Work algorithms, and only ever interact with that technology when someone tries to mine XMR on hacked machines. There are many stories of legitimate blockchain businesses getting their machines shut down by uninformed hosting providers. Not us - we understand DLT and Proof of Stake and know your business is as legit as it gets.

Nitrado Enterprise offers our business customers a variety of products and options for hosting the server infrastructure for their games. This includes the Enterprise Console which allows full control and visibility of the entire server network.

"Nitrado - a superb choice for your server needs!"

  • Certus One relies on Nitrado Enterprise for much of its critical infrastructure. Their experience working with enterprise customers in the gaming industry puts them in a unique spot for Proof of Stake validation, which shares many of the same challenges: very high uptime requirements, low-latency premium traffic, DDoS mitigation for non-standard network protocols, and access to specialized, tailored server hardware specs. Most importantly, they closely work with their customers to meet their needs, no matter how demanding or urgent they are.

    Leopold Schabel, Co-Founder and CTO at Certus One

  • For our Solana validator services, we started with one Nitrado server and quickly added several more. Solana, the world's fastest blockchain, is not a toy. It requires the quickest possible hardware located in low-latency, high-bandwidth data centers around the world. Nitrado has proven that they are up to the task. Cutting-edge hardware, excellent data centers, and prompt customer service make Nitrado a superb choice for your server needs!

Solana is considering switching to IPv6 in the future (click here to read more about it) - we are ready today!

High-security Tier 3 data center

Just to name a few facts: Fault tolerant (N+1). Dual powered equipment. Access controls. Multiple uplinks.


We offer dedicated single-tenant hardware and unlike cloud providers or blockchain infrastructure companies, we have no access to your keys. We understand decentralization and are mindful of the risks - we will stop selling to Solana validators if the cumulative stake of our customers on mainnet ever risks exceeding ⅓.

Latency-optimized network

Some of the largest online gaming companies are among our customers. Gamers hate latency, and so do we - we run our own latency-optimized backbone network with top-tier transit and peerings in 15 locations around the globe (AS199610).

Purpose-built, future-proof spec

We offer a specialized server spec optimized for Solana’s unique storage needs developed in collaboration with Certus One, with Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory modules to store ledger and account data. This is Intel®’s latest generation of Optane™ (Apache Pass) - they behave like a ramdisk, except it’s real persistent memory that survives a reboot. This is uniquely suited for Solana’s on-disk storage of ledger and account data, which benefits heavily from nanosecond latency. This will become even more important as Solana optimizes their storage layer and switches to persistent accounts storage similar to the ledger.

DDoS mitigation

The design and throughput of Solana requires that your validator is publicly exposed on the internet with no scalable sentry layer protecting it, and unlike common protocols based on TCP, commercial mitigation solutions cannot understand and protect its custom UDP protocol. We are specialized in protecting this exact type of protocols: Learn more about SteelShield™.

This allows us to build custom defenses like VIP-based edge filtering, specifically for Solana validators once attacks become more common.
