How it works

The Public Tier sits on top of the Ankr Protocol network. It is kept stable using a backbone of multiple underlying nodes globally distributed across 200 data centers as well as individual providers' homes.

Constant system monitoring ensures that RPC endpoints are synced in real-time to underlying nodes. Whilst, network traffic monitoring uses intelligent caching to optimize speed and automate routing to the best available node at busy times.

This architecture is built for high availability and scalability.
