Neil White is LSD OPEN’s technical director and is often involved in the internal infrastructure part of the company. Recently, he ran into a particularly scary problem with one of our cloud instances and the Ethereum validators running in it.

After following the recommended appeal routes and not gaining any headway whatsover, Neil came up with a plan to move the infrastructure from one cloud provider environment to another.
