Short description: Ongoing costs for Quarter 4 (October, November, December) of 2022, for the running of a high performance and reliable data indexing managed service for Phala Network.
Almost every blockchain has a need to process and query data, however everyone knows that a core weakness of blockchain data is that the processing and query performance is extremely inefficient. SubQuery is an open source platform that solves that.
Additionally, managing infrastructure can also be extremely challenging and many teams don't have the expertise or resource that is needed to deploy indexers to cloud providers and then run them at high availability so that they can be relied on for production use cases. SubQuery provides a hosted service with 99.9% reliability to remove this burden from teams, so they can stay focused on building their dApps.
Phala Network is currently leveraging SubQuery's enterprise-level managed service to provide reliable hosting for their SubQuery projects. This critical service provides production data to applications built by the Phala Network team and the 99.9% uptime reliability ensures a seamless experience for the core team and their ecosystem.
Over the period of 2022-10-01 to 2022-12-31, SubQuery supported 5 different projects for Phala Network with a total of 9 (4 staging and 5 production) deployments. These projects were run in a shared database for a total of 18,762.90 compute hours. Each project deployment requires an indexing service, a compute service, and database access run in a production environment and monitored constantly to ensure availability.
