Rate My Node — Tarantulo edition. A short story about a comfortable and simple node running solution. Which I invite to explore!
With this article, I decided to cover two things. Showing up my nodes setup, the tools I use/created and at the same time teach the ways of simple node setup and easy management.
So far my Node runner journey was not the most successful. I probably did not try hard enough. Or used a VPS that was good enough. Well, I tried running my nodes from my mining rig…
So for the BoN part 2, I decided I need something better. I went all in and got a Google Cloud with trial 300$ offer. Click here if you to get the same offer.
And it is quite great. Everything is working its peace and quiet, no worries that it will crash anymore. Nodes are stable and running out in the cloud! If you want to try setting up an Elrond node this way. Just watch my tutorial video. And do not forget to 👍 and 🐱👤Subscribe! And also follow me on Twitter!
Of course, this is not really sustainable in the long since the price of running the Elrond Nodes in Google Cloud is quite steep! For the mainnet, I will be moving to a different VPS solution. But if you want to try running an Elrond node this is probably the fastest and the most simple way to do it.
Currently, I am running 2x instance for 3x nodes each.
6 cores N1 vCPU
16.5 GB memory
300 GB disk space
I am lazy and forgetful so I came up with this simple tool. I creatively named Elrond Node Runner Menu v0.1 or ENRM for short 😅, but on a serious note, it’s a really useful tool for Elrond Node management. Especially if you don’t remember all the commands or you are just lazy typing them.
