Development teams love Chainstack

Vlad Zatsepin

VP Engineering
“Chainstack helps Acronis to avoid the headache of operating blockchain nodes used in the test lab and production for Acronis Notary service. Before using Chainstack, Acronis engineers were continuously distracted by having to deal with new Ethereum forks, updating third-party libraries, resyncing blockchain database, and so on. With Chainstack, our engineers can focus on the delivery of new features to Acronis customers.”

Rahul Bishnoi

Blockchain Engineer
“Great UI and UX, and easy on-boarding.”

Solomon Lederer

Founder
“Very cool service you have built.”

Documentation

We already have a wealth of information on protocols, consensus, and deployment options in our documentation.

Consortium blockchain management

The hard way* vs the Chainstack way

Experiment in a local test environment

  • Read multiple blog posts on how to set up a protocol in your local environment
  • Set up environment via terminal
  • Install Git and Docker
  • Set up the blockchain protocol:
    • Clone protocol binaries to local environment
    • Download various dependencies
    • Configure global blockchain parameters
    • Generate key material
    • Create nodes locally
  • Troubleshoot on online forums for issues related to the custom local environment with various versions of applications running
  • Deploy to private or public cloud infrastructure
    • Review cloud provider documentation and install specific CLI tools
    • Review Docker documentation and install Docker
    • Review Kubernetes documentation and install kubectl
    • Review protocol documentation and clone protocol binaries to cloud environment via terminal
    • Configure general protocol settings
    • Generate key material
    • Build Docker image file containing specific protocol
    • Create container service on cloud environment
    • Push image to cloud registry
    • Deploy image on Kubernetes cluster
    • Configure port details for each member that requires access to the application
    • Manage each additional member with access to the consortium project manually
    • Troubleshoot on online forums and by reaching out to specific hosting providers for resource allocation

Time taken: several hours to days
It doesn’t end here. Continuously monitor and adjust resources, upgrade tooling, implement patches, add or remove nodes manually.
* Only for illustration purposes

Deploy in a choice of enterprise-grade production environments

  • Create a project on Chainstack
  • Invite others to join the project
  • Choose a protocol
  • Specify a deployment option
  • Create a network and nodes

That’s it!

Time taken: less than 10 mins
What’s more:
  • Connect to the blockchain node’s secured API
  • Get immediate access to the blockchain explorer
  • Scale up on additional networks, nodes, members in a few clicks
  • Start building smart contracts and DApps right away
