Tezos-k8s is a collection of Helm charts and container images that can be used to deploy Tezos blockchain infrastructure on a Kubernetes cluster.

Use it to deploy:

  • a Tezos node
  • a Tezos RPC service
  • a Tezos baker (coming soon)
  • a Tezos private chain

on your laptop or in a cloud platform such as AWS, Digitalocean or GCP.

Tezos-k8s is actively maintained by the team at Oxhead Alpha, a Tezos core development company.

Quick start

We assume you have access to a Kubernetes cluster and helm installed (see Prerequisites).

To deploy a Tezos mainnet node:

  1. Add the Oxhead Alpha Helm chart repository to your local Helm installation:
helm repo add oxheadalpha
  1. Install a Tezos node:
helm install tezos-mainnet oxheadalpha/tezos-chain \
--namespace oxheadalpha --create-namespace

k8s will spin up an Octez node which will download and import a Tezos mainnet tarball. This will take a few minutes.
