This section is meant for administrators looking to setup IPFS and IPFS Cluster on a production environment. Administrators are expected to be familiar with IPFS and with the deployment of production applications (including reading the logs, being able to verify if ports are open, if connectivity exists between peers or if process is running).
Additionally, running IPFS Cluster in production requires:
- Basic understanding of the Cluster application architecture and how it interacts with IPFS
ipfs-cluster-serviceconfigurations to the environment and the requirements as well as the environment as necessary (firewall ports etc.)
- Starting the
ipfs-cluster-servicedaemons and verifying
- Optionally automating the deployment and lifecycle of cluster peers.
These topics are explained in the sections below:
