Ceramic node operators are responsible for hosting the various Ceramic networks. Ceramic clients need to connect to nodes in order to access the network.
Who needs to run a node?¶
Application developers can get started building by connecting their clients to one of the nodes hosted by community members, but before moving to production you will need to run a node for your application.
We're working with commercial node provides to offer production Ceramic nodes-as-a-service. We will update this page as those become available.
Launching a node¶
Set up a local Ceramic node for development and testing purposes.
Run a reliable, performant Ceramic node in the cloud or on bare metal for use by production applications.
