Large scale miners face many challenges. A hashrate aggregation proxy is a key tool that miners can use to optimize their farms. Introducing Braiins Farm Proxy.
Every miner knows that plugging in their first machine is where the fun only begins. But as a mining farm grows, the value of maximum efficiency and optimal monitoring tools grows with it. With every additional machine placed on a rack comes an exponentially larger amount of operational monitoring, maintenance requirements, bandwidth considerations, and potential latency problems.
One essential tool for almost any miner operating more than one machine is a hashrate aggregation proxy that enables data load reduction, stable connections, easy primary and backup pool configurations, and more. Braiins is excited to launch this exact product, called the Braiins Farm Proxy.
In short, the Braiins Farm Proxy is a single app that allows miners to configure parallel usage of multiple pools, reduce data loads, designate backup pools, control aggregated operational management dashboards, and more. For miners using the Braiins Pool, as their destination pool, the Farm Proxy also offers encrypted messaging that prevents hashrate hijacking and secures all data communication between the pool and miner.
Braiins is releasing a public beta version of Braiins Farm Proxy for miners to use and share feedback with the Braiins development team. The Farm Proxy beta is available as a free, standalone application that runs locally onsite. Miners can use the Farm Proxy together with other Braiins products (e.g., Braiins OS+ or Braiins Pool) or completely independent of them.
Operational security and reduced data loads are just a few of the biggest advantages from using the Braiins Farm Proxy. Here’s a short list with brief explanations of these and other benefits.
Even though Braiins Farm Proxy is ideal for hosting providers and large mining operators, a miner of any size can easily configure the Braiins Farm Proxy to separate hashrate according to their unique needs (e.g., hashrate per rack, per container, or per hosting client). Almost any miner with any size operation larger than one machine can benefit from the optimizations, management toolings, and security of the proxy. Even with only one machine, a miner can easily configure pool backups and reduce their data consumption.
To get started using Braiins Farm Proxy beta, miners can visit braiins.com/farm-proxy. Miners interested can review this documentation with information on how to install and configure the app. As always, feel free to reach out to our support team - submit a request via the Help Center.
Final Thought: the bigger a mining farm is, the more beneficial Braiins Farm Proxy will be for its operations. But the product is useful for every miner at any scale, even a home miner who runs a few Antminer S19s.
