Regional elastic node

What is a regional elastic node?

Regional elastic node is a service providing a regional-based endpoints which are tightly bound to particular location and provider.

Networks

Regional elastic nodes can be deployed in the following networks:

Modes

For regional elastic node deployed on the most of public chains, Chainstack supports the following modes:

  • Full β€” a node that stores full blockchain data. However, it has limitations to how many blocks are available for querying.
  • Archive β€” a node that stores full blockchain data and an archive of historical states, which makes it possible to query any block since the chain genesis.

The following modes are available per each protocol:

ProtocolFullArchiveFull mode querying limits
Ethereumβœ…βœ…Latest 128 blocks

Fantomβœ…βœ…As Go Opera, the Fantom client, does not have automatic state pruning implemented, there is currently no difference between a full node and an archive node.
Harmonyβœ…βŒLatest 128 blocks
Starknetβœ…βŒ
Tezosβœ…βœ…With a full node, you can query any block information or operation but you cannot query the balances or staking rights before the current checkpoint. A checkpoint is automatically done every 4,096 blocks. This means that with a full node, you can only query the balances and staking rights from when the last checkpoint happened until the latest block within the current 4,096 block cycle.

Dedicated gateways

A dedicated gateway is one of the elastic node customization features that is available on the Enterprise plan.

Dedicated gateways process connections and traffic exclusively for a specific customer, avoiding potential issues from handling multiple customers' workload. This ensures a stable and reliable connection while reducing the likelihood of connection errors.
