Easily provision and monitor blobbers using Chimney

Chimney streamlines the process of provisioning blobbers on the Züs network. Service providers can kickstart their ZCN earnings by deploying blobbers on their own servers or rented infrastructure, effortlessly generating passive income. Blobber A blobber serves as a storage provider within the Züs network, comprising decentralized servers scattered across the globe, all interconnected to the Züs network to cater to our users' storage requirements.


Services Provisioned via Chimney

Blobber: The deployment of blobbers will be executed within Docker containers. All blobber configurations and data will be securely stored in the /var/0chain/blobber directory. In case of an additional hard disk, ensure it is properly mounted to the /var/0chain/blobber directory.

Validator: The validator will also be deployed within Docker containers.

Caddy Server: Depending on the domain name you furnish, an SSL certificate will be promptly provisioned.

Monitoring/Grafana: This component serves as a crucial tool for monitoring both the blobber and the validator, allowing you to conveniently retrieve logs as needed.
