Running your own Cardano node has never been so fast and easy.

But first, a kind reminder to the security aspects of running docker containers.

Guild Operators Docker strategy ( mainnet/ preview / preprod / guild)⚓︎

Modular docker images based on Debian.

Based on the Guild's work we decided to build the Cardano Node images in 3 stages:

  • 1st stage: it uses to prepare the development environment before compiling the node source code. -> Stage1
  • 2nd stage: based on stage1, this stage intent is to compile and produce the binaries of the node. -> Stage2
  • 3rd stage: based upon a minimal debian image it incorporates the node's binaries as well as all the Koios' SPO tools. -> Stage3
