What type of node is best for me?
Our QuickNode API service is superior to a single Dedicated node.
Dedicated = 1 node, 1 location; flat-rate billing; doesn't auto-scale, not redundant; will slow down at full capacity (~2M calls/day).
API (Launch/Pro/Scale) = globally-distributed network of super-powerful nodes; redundant (always guaranteed a healthy node); advanced mempool monitoring; DNS-based request routing (requests routed to nearest region); auto-scaling (scales up/down with demand, guaranteed performance); flexible billing (base rate + overage at the end of the month, if you use more than the base call allotment).
We recommend an API plan (Launch/Pro/Scale) for best performance and for production environments.
It is the best-performing service we offer 🚀.
