Crypto mining hardware manufacturer Bitmain released the international version of AntSentry, its cloud-based operation and maintenance management system.
The platform provides management support services to miners, allowing them to monitor hardware in real-time, handle batch and automatic operations, analyze profits, and maintain the safety of their digital operations.
A Chinese version of AntSentry was released earlier this year during Bitmain’s annual mining summit in Sanya. The positive feedback the platform received prompted the company to release an international version, making the extensive list of functions available to a global audience.
According to the company’s announcement, published on 11 December, AntSentry will support all mainstream hardware models, including Antminer, Whatsminer, Avalonminer, and Innosilicon. The platform is compatible with mining pools BTC.com, AntPool, HuobiPool, F2Pool, Poolin, and others.
Bob Liang, the Business Line Leader of AntSentry, said the company has attracted many Chinese miners, who reported that their operational efficiency has gone up.
“They have seen a strong improvement of operational efficiency and successfully reduced operation and maintenance costs with more efficient overall monitoring and management. AntSentry’s performance spoke for itself,” he said in the company’s release.
A set of advanced features were introduced to AntSentry, enabling one-click management for the top ten most frequent failures, and batch execution for eight of the most common operational procedures.
The company expects the number of its data centers to grow as AntSentry’s international version gets deployed globally. The platform currently has access to over 50 data centers and manages more than 500,000 miners, the company said.
