White Whale

White Whale

Unique arbitrage platform built on Terra ecosystem.

About

This client wants to stabilize the entire Terra ecosystem through community arbitrage, by decentralizing the enforcement of peg between UST and Luna tokens. By giving the regular users of Terra community tools and means to participate in complex trading strategies through their solutions, White Whale opens the possibility to earn delta-neutral profits while simultaneously contributing to keeping the peg, which makes the entire Terra ecosystem more secure, robust, and efficient.

Amazon Web Services

This project had special requirements regarding the amount of infrastructure location zones, which only AWS was able to appropriately satisfy.

Regions of operation

Timeline

We have been recommended by the StarTerra team. White Whale team was building their applications, but had no previous infrastructure deployed, nor prepared.
How we started?

We have designed the infrastructure from the ground up, in adherence to IaC methodology.

We prepared Terra LCD and FCD nodes to run as containers, in a custom, efficient setup.

Due to the nature of this project, low latency between infrastructure components was crucial - we have applied additional care to ensure it will be as low as possible.

Another integration was required - we married serverless functions with containerized applications.

Monitoring solutions for all microservices, CI/CD, and infrastructure parts were deployed, to additionally boost security of the infrastructure and provide further performance insights.

Together with White Whale team we worked on second version of the architecture, that would span across all available AWS regions.

We prepared a solution that will automatically deploy workloads to any AWS region on developer demand.

We migrated all workloads from Kubernetes to AWS Elastic Container Service in order to have ability to quickly spin workloads in selected region.

Multiple proof of concept architectures were made to achieve the lowest latency between all components.

In order to allow developers to safely access internal components on the development environment, as well as to make sure we have a complete audit trail, we have introduced Teleport and Cloudflare Teams.

Control Points

• Initial meeting.
• Staying in touch with front-end and back-end teams on Slack.

Success! What's happening now?

The project went live, and our cooperation continues. We are responsible for maintenance and day-to-day operations, but also further development of the infrastructure, according to the customer's needs.

Special Focus

This specific case has an immense focus on latency between components. We had to design and build infrastructure that will meet strict requirements in this regard. Because of them, we decided to run Terra LCD and FCD nodes ourselves, on top of Kubernetes orchestrator.

The timeframe of this project was very limited, so naturally, we've been looking for experts, with immediate, tested and sure solutions for problems that we knew would occur. During the first meeting, the CTO has presented a few solutions for every issue we have mentioned, and more!
