I am going through the Stake Pool School and got already pretty far. Now, I am pretty sure that I want to set up and run a pool very soon, thanks to the school!!
I have a question for experienced system admins regarding what they think about the set-up I am contemplating:
Option 1: I buy a new, powerful computer (something like KAIZN showed in his video) and run it from home through a 1000mbit/s internet connection with fibre cable until the house, but inside the house normale wires.
Question to 1: Can I use that internet connection also for surfing on my normal computer or would that be unadvisable, and can I run the relay node as well as the block producer node on the same computer?
Option 2: I rent 2 or 3 instances on AWS (1-2 relays and 1 BP), buy a rather cheap pc (something like this) and control the three instances through three control panels/terminals.
Which option do you think works better for me? Or do you have any suggestions to make it work even better?
Thanks to everyone for helping out!
Best Regards, Bastian
