Golem Portal Update: Introducing Cache on Golem!

We are thrilled to unveil the upcoming addition to the Golem Portal: Cache on Golem! This new service is an ingenious implementation that brings cache databases to the forefront of the Golem Network.

This first full service deployment on Golem Portal is compatible with the widely-used Redis API and aims to provide uptime of 24/7/365.

Cache on Golem is a Proof-of-Concept (PoC) that can be used as a free-tier service and is accessible via web3 authentication using MetaMask wallet.

Here is what you can do with it:

βœ… Boost Application Performance: Utilize redis API-compatible lightning-fast in-memory data storage for rapid access to frequently required information, improving response times and user experiences.

βœ… Scale Effortlessly: Tap into the power of Golem Network's distributed computing capabilities, allowing your Cache service to scale your database traffic seamlessly to meet growing demands.

βœ… Save Costs: Reduce infrastructure costs to zero by leveraging Golem's decentralized network.

You will be able to connect to your Cache on Golem, for instance, using python (redis-py) or node.js (ioredis) via connection url. We will be providing code snippets.

Here are the key details you need to know:

  • πŸ“¦ Cache Instance: The cache instance available on Golem Portal offers a generous limit of 4GB.
  • 🌐 No Colocation: As the Golem Network operates in a decentralized manner, colocation is not currently supported.
  • ⚑️ Performance Considerations: Given the nature of the Golem Network and its diverse provider network, we cannot guarantee performance levels. However, we plan on tackling this in https://github.com/golemfactory/yagna/issues/2357
