The Node is a fundamental component of DWService in fact it allows the connection between the user and the agent. When the agent connects to the DWService infrastructure, it is redirected to the nearest node or to the less loaded Node, in the same way when a user connects to the agent it is redirected to the Node where the agent is connected. To allow users to have a stable and fast session it is necessary that their agents are connected to neighboring and performing Nodes.
Currently the active Nodes are:
Roubaix / France
Porsgrunn / Norway
Tudela / Spain
Chicago / United States
Montreal / Canada
You can contribute by providing a server where we will install a Node. Since we want to guarantee a high level service, we prefer to have a few Nodes but with superior characteristics, because each Node adds load to the infrastructure that continuously monitors the health of the Nodes. This allows us to have a service always available and to solve any problems quickly.
The characteristics of the server must be:
Server located within a Web Farm
At least 2 core of 2.3GHz
At least 6GB of RAM
At least 30GB of HD
Bandwidth of at least 256Mbps
Operating system Linux CentOS 7
Since many users use DWService, we apply some limitations to the service such as limiting the bandwidth for each session. So your help will be essential to reduce or eliminate these limitations. If you want to provide us a server, contact us at email@example.com. We offer for the account that helps us a maximum bandwidth of 18,8Mbps (on best effort basis).
