Simple Deployment Template

This section describes one way to deploy a BigchainDB network (i.e. a set of connected BigchainDB nodes). You can modify this simple deployment template as you see fit. It’s “simple” in the sense that each BigchainDB node is installed and run on a single virtual machine (or real machine). We also have a Kubernetes Deployment Template (not simple).

Note 1: These instructions will also work for a “network” with only one node. If you want your network to be able to handle the failure or misbehavior of one node, then your network must have at least four nodes. Nodes can be added or removed from a network after is it up and running.

Note 2: If you want to set up a node or network so that you can contribute to developing and testing the BigchainDB code, then see the docs about contributing to BigchainDB .
