RV64 consist of 4 SiFive Unmatched computers running Ubuntu Linux, the servers have a quad core U74 superscalar RISC-V CPU @1.4GHz, 16GB RAM and 500GB SSD. All servers have two Gigabit network interfaces. The stake pool is connected to the internet using 1Gbps up and downstream primary connection and a fallback connection over 4G/LTE. RaspberryPIs is used for console, metrics and alerting. The 1000VA UPS can run the complete stakepool for about 1 hour and 30 minutes as it just uses 100W.
Promote RISC-V opensource ISA and keep Cardano decentralized
Centralization has many forms, instruction set architecture is one, currently most pools run on x86 and some on ARM. We like to add RISC-V as an extra and open choice.
The People Behind RV64
I am Wolter the stake pool operator with over 25 years experience running software as a service from the early days of the web out of our own datacenters, nowadays in the cloud and decentralized.
