We’re glad to announce that we are now providing officially IOTA public nodes from germany. Our nodes are in ALPHA stage and might restart or resync sometimes if we need to do maintenance. If that is the case just be patient or switch your wallet node temporary. Because our whole infrastructure is orchestrated via docker and orchestration tools like Rancher or Kubernetes it wasn’t easy to use the existing docker image from iotas IRI (full node, iota reference implementation) because of missing possibility to configure the container by docker environment variables. So we decided to fork IRI and contribute a new configuration system and docker image to the IOTA project. We hope that this will be merged into the official IRI repository soon. Andreas Osowski, core developer at the iota project already confirmed that he will check our pull request the next few days.
