Amazon AWS (ARM processors)

Does ARM processors work for Cardano Nodes? The T4Gs are the cheapest to run vs other x86 based systems.

That’s a good question. I’ll start doing some investigations about this. I’ll let you know my findings if you are interested.

yes that woud be helpful

In my opinion haskell is not stable on ARM yet.
So we don’t have to run a pool on ARM.

I did try to get cardano-node compiled on aarch64 but ran into a bunch of issues too. I felt it wasn’t quite there yet for production. :frowning:

I have a lot of interest in moving everything over to aarch64. As you said it opens up T4Gs on amazon but also very convenient and cheep offline key signing with Raspberry Pis.

I did it successfully, I got my server now running on it and it’s very stable honestly.
Compilation happened like a charm once all the roadblock and difficulties were resolved. I can’t see why it wouldn’t run smoothly since it’s only using standard compilation tools. Or officialy provided ready for aarch64 anyway.
We could argue that coding was not optimized, but I doubt that code was “optimized” for x86_64" anyway by developers. Except the compilation layer, which was the exact purpose.

I’ll share the binaries and write some articles about it on how I solved the different problems.

PS: IT is not sorcery, it’s technical and scientific. So I usually try to stay very pragmatic in my opinions :wink:
