Nirvana Labs FAQ

Frequently asked questions on Nirvana Labs.

Why should you use Nirvana Labs?

Nirvana Labs is a managed RPC service that offers three distinct benefits:

  • Ease of use: We've made it easier to utilize blockchain infrastructure without the headaches of running nodes yourself, giving developers access to advanced analytics and reliable service.
  • Performance: Nirvana Labs offers one of the lowest latency and highest reliability solution compared to other providers thanks to Nirvana Cloud being built to optimized RPC node performance.
  • Cost Effective: Running your node infrastructure with Nirvana Labs saves money in infrastructure costs, time, and energy.

How is Nirvana different from other service providers?

Nirvana Labs takes a different approach than existing RPC service providers. Rather than relying on centralized Web2 infrastructure services like AWS, GCP or similar cloud providers, Nirvana Labs developed Nirvana Cloud, a blockchain-optimized cloud. We built Nirvana Cloud with cutting-edge infrastructure and proprietary software to optimize performance throughout the entire architecture. This results in increased performance metrics like reliability, security and availability as well as reduced latency.
