Deploy Hyperledger Cello on AWS EC2

The following will show how to deploy Cello on AWS EC2 Ubuntu 14.04 instances.

AWS Setup

  1. If you dont have an Amazon AWS account, create one.

  2. After logging into AWS console, in the services section, select EC2.

  3. Create atleast 2 instances.One for master node and one for host. Click launch instance. Select Ubuntu 14.04 image as shown in figure Select Image.

  4. Select the instance type depending on requirements as shown in figure link.

  5. Add more configuration details as needed. Make sure that Auto-assign public IP is enabled. For your reference you can view the below image IP setup.

  6. Add necessary storage.See image: Image.

  7. Add tags as needed. Image.

  8. Create a security group and define rules for instances.I have kept minimum security by allowing http,tcp and ssh available to internet. Try to make it as secure as possible.Example settings for security rules.

  9. Download private key for ssh into the instances and launch instance. Image.

  10. From terminal, you can ssh into the AWS Ubuntu instance using command- sudo ssh -i yourprivatekey.pem ubuntu@IP.

Cello Installation

  1. Install docker and docker-compose. Follow the Cello master node setup. In the host, follow the worker node setup. Other steps are the same for both master and worker node.

  2. Once done, in the master node, you should be able to run the command docker -H Worker_Node_IP:2375 version.

Example: You should get something like this in the master node-

ubuntu@ip-172-31-34-249:~$ docker -H version
