[K8S] K8S Staking Pool
Pool based on a high availability Kubernetes cluster managed and hosted in Switzerland.
2020-05-07 00h07 - Leaders for the next epoch !
After having very bad luck in the last epoch I decided to use the cncli tool to see how much of the pool has been selected for the current epoch. And we have been selected to validate 4 blocks so the performance of the next epoch should be OK if everything goes well.
Thanks again for your loyalty ! 😀
2020-05-02 23h55 - Migration of the cardano node on the new cluster completed ! 🥂
The migration of the node went perfectly well !
I will be able to disconnect the old cluster this week and everything will be perfect.
Thanks again for your support and your loyalty 🇨🇭😀
2020-05-02 15h00 - Problem with new cluster solved ! 🍾
After having created the cluster with different configurations dozens of times, tried several operating systems, several container runtime, several container network interface, several different ingress, several load balancing system, I finally found the solution... it took me much more time than expected but now everything works fine. I'm going to start migrating the applications running on my old cluster to the new one with the shortest downtime possible. Concerning the cardano node, I'm going to run it on both clusters for a few minutes, once the new one is running properly I'm going to redirect the port of my router on the new cluster and then turn off the old one. The migration is planned between tonight and Tuesday night depending on when I find the time.
If you have any questions I'm still available on the K8s Pool telegram group 😊.
2020-04-25 14h50 - Better performance than expected & problems with the implementation of the new K8s cluster
We are lucky to have been selected to validate more blocks than expected. This will make up for the bad luck of the last few epochs.
Setting up the K8s cluster is taking longer than expected, I want to change the networking system to secure the cluster but I'm having some problems. I spent the weekend trying to fix it but I haven't managed to fix it yet. I'll keep you informed of the situation but don't worry the cluster that is currently running is working perfectly fine as you can see. 😊
2020-04-23 12h10 - K8s installation in progress and more luck than usual 😃The installation of the Kubernetes cluster is in progress, I hope to have time to finish it all this weekend.
We finally have a bit more luck than the last epoch ! Thank you again for your loyalty !
2020-04-21 16h15 - The two new servers have arrived !
Good news, I received the two new R630 servers ! I need to install them and I will add them to the kubernetes cluster to replace two of the current nodes. Unfortunately I don't have time to install them tonight but I'm trying to do that tomorrow if possible and finish the installation this week.
2020-04-19 9h30 - 2 New Dell PowerEdge R630
I decided to buy two Dell PowerEdge R630 servers to replace two nodes of my current Kubernetess cluster.
These two servers are oversized for the moment but I prefer to take some margin for Goguen and smart contracts.
The delivery of the two servers is expected this week but I will keep you informed of the situation.
2020-04-18 10h15 - Cardano Node 1.26.2 Upgrade

And here is the Pool telegram ! Telegram : K8S - K8S Staking Pool 🇨🇭
I am at your disposal if you have any questions, if you want to know more about the pool or if you just want to talk 😊
2020-04-16 23h40 - Board Creation
I wanted to inform you that we are unfortunately not very lucky these last epoch ... However, I guarantee you that the pool turns like a Swiss clock 🇨🇭! I suggest you check for yourself on the dashboard I make it available to you. K8s Pool Monitoring Website
I just added the leader logs to be more transparent 😀
I decided to create this tab so that you can know the latest news from the pool 😁
Thank you again for supporting my work and the decentralization of the cardano blockchain by delegating your ada to a single pool operators !
