Setup Cello Platform

Cello follows a typical Master-Worker architecture. There are two types of Nodes in the cluster.

  • Master Node: Holds Cello services to manage (e.g., create/delete) the chains inside Worker Nodes through Worker's management APIs. Usually, Master Node provides web dashboard (port 8080) and RESTful APIs (port 80). It is recommended to use Linux (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04+) or MacOS;
  • Worker Node: Nodes to hold blockchains. Cello support several types of worker node from single server to cluster. Take Docker host or Swarm cluster for example, the Worker's management APIs (i.e., Docker daemon APIs) should be accessible (typically on port 2375) from the Master Node.

Worker Node

Currently we support Docker Host or Swarm Cluster as Worker Node. More types will be added soon.

Special Configuration for Production

Here we describe the setups for development usage. If you want to deploy Cello for production, please also refer to the Production Configuration.
