This whitepaper outlines the steps for deploying a secure, reliable, and scalable Chainlink environment on AWS. Chainlink is a decentralized blockchain oracle network that operates on the Ethereum blockchain, facilitating the transfer of tamper-proof data from off-chain sources to on-chain smart contracts.
The deployment method chosen for the Chainlink environment in this whitepaper is Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) because of its scalability and ability to simplify communication between workloads. The article provides a step-by-step guide for creating a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), Relational Database Service (RDS) database, and deploying the EKS cluster. It also includes information on deploying the Chainlink node using a custom Helm chart.
Overall, this TrackIt whitepaper serves as a helpful guide for those looking to set up their own Chainlink environment on AWS using Terraform.
