After the Aethir Node Sale season, there is much to look forward to. Aethir is pioneering global decentralized computation in a unique manner. By buying Aethir nodes, users can now support this venture while also creating a passive revenue opportunity. In this article, we provide information on the tech know-how on how to run an Aethir node, and how you can achieve stellar results with Luganodes NaaS.

About Aethir

Aethir is an enterprise-grade AI-focused GPU-as-a-service provider. Its decentralized cloud computing infrastructure allows GPU providers (containers) to meet enterprise clients who need powerful H100 chips for professional AI/ML tasks. Aethir also supports cloud gaming clients with virtual computing phones and GPUs, partnering with the world’s largest telecommunication companies. Everything within the Aethir ecosystem is decentralized and community-owned.

This all starts with an Aethir Node Sale, where users purchase checker node licenses. These licenses enable users to act as validators, ensuring the integrity and Quality of Service (QoS) of the network. This creates a secure, decentralized computation provider for all. Learn more about the Aethir ecosystem here.

What is a Checker Node?

A Checker Node is one of the three fundamental components of the Aethir Network backend infrastructure:

  • Containers: Execute and render applications, ensuring a "zero lag" experience by offloading workloads from local devices.

  • Checkers: Ensure the integrity and performance of Containers, maintaining the network's Quality of Service (QoS).

  • Indexers: Match consumers with suitable Containers, ensuring swift launches of cloud-based apps and services.

How Do Checker Nodes Work?

Checker nodes ensure the integrity and service quality of the Aethir network by verifying the Container and its service processes. This includes checking parameters such as liveness, capacity, and Quality of Service (QoS) through methods like heartbeat collection, benchmark testing, and link data analysis. After completing a task, a Checker Node signs the results with its private key and delivers them to the Referee. Nodes that deliver the same result as the majority are rewarded in tokens.

What is the Checker Node License (NFT)?

The Checker Node License, an ERC721 NFT, allows you to earn rewards by running a Checker Node Client. You can run your Checker Node Client on your own machine, through a VPS, via NaaS, or delegate it to another user's machine.
