Cloud services

If you are interested in running a Stader node but lack the necessary hardware or prefer not to maintain a 24/7 online DIY Kit, you have the option to utilize cloud services for node operation. Hosting an Ethereum node on the cloud allows for convenient and reliable access to the Ethereum network. Cloud hosting provides scalability, flexibility, and accessibility for running your Ethereum node. By leveraging cloud services, you can deploy and manage your node on platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), or Microsoft Azure.

Advantages of cloud services

  • Cloud services are highly scalable, allowing you to easily scale up or down resources based on demand.

  • Cloud services often provide built-in high availability features. Your applications and data are distributed across multiple servers and data centers, reducing the risk of downtime.

Disadvantages of cloud services

  • Cloud services tend to be more expensive compared to VPS.

  • Cloud services are popular among node operators for running nodes, so they potentially reduce the decentralization of the Ethereum network.
