Port and Infrastructure Changes – 10 April 2017

Over the past 2 weeks we have been slowly deploying and testing completely new infrastructure in the USA and Asia locations. It is finally ready for production usage, and we’ve conducted all the necessary DNS changes. The largest change in the infrastructure overall (Europe included) is the use of a load balancers and stratum virtual machines that can easily be scaled up or down dependent upon the amount of load and connections in that location. This will help to reduce stale shares, and provide a more smooth and stable platform for Alpereum as a whole.

We’ve also added a completely new location, US West which is located in Seattle. To connect to this new location simply change your stratum server setting in your mining software to uswest.alpereum.ch. We have also changed the naming scheme of our US East location, instead of usa.alpereum.ch it is now useast.alpereum.ch. No need to hurry and change your miners, usa.alpereum.ch will permanently point to useast.alpereum.ch from now on. The Asia location has also been changed from Hong Kong to Singapore, however the stratum server still remains the same: asia.alpereum.ch

For the past several months, Alpereum has been known to host lower difficulty ports such as 500 million difficulty and 1 billion difficulty. While we prided ourselves in this feature, the recent popularity of Ether has made us a target by malicious botnet miners that use infected devices to CPU mine on the lower difficulties. This created a significant amount of load for very little hashrate benefit. We also do not believe in allowing these malicious actors to persist. We’ve sinced removed those lower difficulties, and changed around our port scheme as a whole. The old ports still work, however they redirect to the new ones. You can see the new port layout on our Join Page.
