Please describe the setup you are using for your validator? Include any relevant security information, processor speed, backups and sentry nodes etc…

1 node + 2 sentry nodes. 8CPU/16G Ram.

Our servers are being build automatically with Ansible, Chef and Git. We use Grafana, Sensu and PagerDuty for dashboard, alerts and incidents. We use Elk stack for log monitoring and have 24/7 oncall covering .

We run lots of security features at server installation, all beeing automated in Ansible playbooks. We harden SSH config, we close all ports and only allow what is necessary, we block ips that are scanning, we register the node in Grafana, Sensu, Elk and start monitoring.

With all this automation in place we are confident that we have a good disaster recovery plan. It makes it very easy for us to move to a new server in case of problems, to do mainetnance work, or to do version upgrades without downtime.
