TODA Rings part 1: TODAQ's TaaS API platform picks up speed
(2 min read)
Our TaaS accounts contain more than mere values: they contain TODA files themselves. Unlike ledger-based solutions where columns can be simply tallied up, our system evaluates the validity of every asset in a given inventory before reporting its overall status. This rigorous process reflects the integrity of TODA technology, but occasionally led to the situation where determining balances took longer than a customer might expect. Think of it this way. If you had a digital balance that was 1,000,000.00 or 1.00, there’s not much difference in the work need to read and confirm the total. On the other hand, if you have 1,000,000 or 1.00 in physical bills and coins, you’re going to have to spend a lot more effort validating the million. TODA behaves like the physical world in this respect as digital assets become unique like bills and coins. We’ve now developed a system tailor-made for the asset-based approach, with offers our customers both the TODA integrity of title, as well as the familiar experience of a ledger balance lookup.
TODAQ Engineering has released a substantial update to our TODA-as-a-Service offering, which eliminates our ‘Loading’ status for large accounts. Enterprise customers with millions of files can now expect immediate account information and transaction submission, without experiencing delays of up to 300 seconds.
This update reflects the investment in infrastructure engineering that has gone into services surrounding the TODA protocol, and underscores our commitment to enterprise-scale services. This most recent achievement is the result of a rewrite of our internal Proof Service, and allows us to leverage the many overlapping proof components between the TODA addresses we host. It is also a result of our services taking on more of a caching and indexing role around the core structures of TODA. Even the largest of TaaS accounts is now able to produce accurate reporting in under 500ms, even with cold caches.
TODAQ engineering continues to drive development toward both performant hosted enterprise services, as well as the capabilities of our new decentralized ADOT agent system. We look forward to sharing innovations in both of these systems in the coming weeks.
