Deploy Celestia Light Node

How to deploy a Celestia Light Node?

NOTE: Spheron Compute offers the flexibility to create custom configurations for your instance.

Spheron allows you to deploy a compute instance pre-installed with Celestia, all set up and ready to use on the Akash Network. To deploy a Celestia light node:

  1. Click "New Cluster" on the top right corner.
  2. Choose "Compute" to use CPU-based instances for running containers.
  3. Choose your desired Compute Type option under Compute Type.
  4. Select Start from Marketplace App.
  5. Pick Celestia Light Node from the marketplace.
  6. Select your preferred Region, if any. If you do not add a region, the container will be deployed in any region for Spot, or in the us-east region for On Demand. Click here to know more.
  7. Spheron will automatically select the recommended plan for the specific template. If you intend to move forward with the recommended plan, just Click "Deploy" to initiate deployment.
  8. Select the instance plan that suits your needs. You can use the "Create Custom Plan" toggle to create custom plans for your CPU based instance.
  9. Configure Storage (SSD) plan for your instance. Use the "Add Persistent Storage" toggle to add persistent storage for your instance.
  10. Update the name and the chain details under arguments in advanced configuration, if required. You can add more advanced configuration if required. Click here to know more.
  11. Click "Deploy" to initiate deployment.

Verify Installation

  • The Celestia Light Client can be accessed only after the Compute Instance is provisioned. Thus, you need to wait for the installation to complete before you can start using it.
  • As the node starts, the Instance Logs will display the output about the operations performed. If you see this in your logs, you have a running node.
