Streamlining Communication and Enhancing Productivity: Managing Multiple RPC Endpoints with XDC Network

In modern software development, collaboration between multiple teams is crucial for building complex and scalable applications. As teams work on different components or services, efficient communication becomes a challenge. Remote Procedure Call (RPC) is a popular approach for inter-process communication, but managing multiple RPC endpoints across different teams can be cumbersome. This article introduces Apothem, a scalable RPC solution that simplifies the management of multiple RPC endpoints, streamlining communication and enhancing productivity.

Showcase Multiple RPC Endpoints Managed by Multiple Teams:

In a large-scale project, it is common to have multiple teams responsible for different parts of the application. Each team might have its own RPC endpoints to expose functionalities and interact with other components. Managing these endpoints manually can lead to coordination issues and communication gaps. Apothem addresses this challenge by providing a centralized solution to manage and orchestrate multiple RPC endpoints efficiently.

XDC Apothem: A Scalable RPC Solution:

Apothem is an advanced RPC framework designed to simplify the process of managing and scaling RPC endpoints. It provides a unified interface for teams to define, deploy, and monitor their RPC endpoints. With Apothem, teams can focus on their specific functionalities without worrying about the underlying infrastructure complexities.

Apothem offers the following key features:

Service Registry: Apothem maintains a registry of available services and their corresponding endpoints. This allows teams to discover and consume services seamlessly.

Load Balancing: Apothem employs intelligent load balancing algorithms to distribute incoming requests across multiple instances of a service, ensuring optimal performance and resource utilization.

Scalability: As the application grows, Apothem automatically scales the RPC infrastructure, adding more instances as needed to handle increased traffic and demand.

Monitoring and Metrics: Apothem provides comprehensive monitoring and metrics capabilities, allowing teams to gain insights into the performance and health of their RPC endpoints.

How to Use XDC Apothem RPC:

Also we can use RPC URL with Dapp like Metamask by adding the XDC Network manually:

  • Access the Dapp/Metamask and click on the Network to add XDC Network manually with RPC endpoint.

PR and Chain List Link:

To facilitate collaboration and interoperability, Apothem supports the concept of Pull Requests(PR). Teams can submit PRs to contribute to the shared RPC infrastructure, propose changes, or report issues.

Additionally, Apothem integrates with Chainlist, a powerful tool for managing a chain of RPC endpoints, enabling seamless communication across different blockchain networks and applications.
