Stellar Development Foundation (SDF) revealed details of the Horizon 2.0 update
According to an official blog post by the Stellar (XLM) team, Horizon 2.0’s release of its API server is up and running. First of all, it eliminates the need to roll out the Stellar validator to interact with the blockchain.
Big news… we’ve just released Horizon 2.0! 🎉
This major release has been years in the making. It lets people deploy Horizon with fewer resources, under looser constraints, and with far more flexibility than ever before!

Alongside that, running a full-fledged validator did not make sense for the majority of use cases. Thus, with Horizon 2.0, its API instrument can be activated separately.
While running a validator, a client can contribute to the decentralization of Stellar (XLM) protocol or take part in crucial referendums. With Horizon, a customer can track events in-network, submit new transactions and explore the current state of the blockchain.
With the new update, Stellar introduces a modular architecture that optimizes the interaction between the parts of the blockchain system. The new version of Stellar Core can process ledgers entirely in-memory, so there is no more need to maintain a separate Core DB.
Ingestion, the process of initially connecting to network instruments, now takes less than one day while it used to take weeks, even on high-end machines. Additionally, the process of running Stellar Core becomes far more memory efficient. The consumption of HD space is lowered by hundreds of gigabytes.
