Architecture of Space and Time Network

Validator/Data Warehouse Interactivity

Space and Time is two-tier network, composed of the Validator Layer and a Data Warehouse. The success of the SxT platform depends on the seamless interactivity of the Validator and the Data Warehouse to facilitate simple and secure queries against on-chain and off-chain data.

The data warehouse is composed of a network of database and compute clusters that are commanded by and routed to the Space and Time Validator. The clusters may communicate to each other upon request by the Validator through the commanding endpoints.

Each cluster is operated by a database node operator in a permissionless manner but is responsible for the database cluster's connectivity, availability, and usability. The Validator monitors, commands, and verifies the services provided by these clusters and then orchestrates data flow and queries between end users and the data warehouse clusters.
