Swarm unveils a partnership with Digital Ocean

The Swarm Foundation is excited to announce an exciting new partnership with Digital Ocean, marking a significant milestone in its journey to simplify and enhance decentralised storage accessibility. This collaboration introduces the Swarm Lightnode 1-Click App on Digital Ocean, a breakthrough for developers and businesses aiming to effortlessly leverage decentralised storage solutions.

Introducing Swarm Lightnode on Digital Ocean

Swarm Lightnode, powered by Bee version 1.18.2, licensed under the BSD-3-Clause, provides a robust and compliant software foundation. This partnership is set to revolutionise how developers interact with blockchain technology, making it more accessible, scalable, and efficient.

Seamless Integration with Digital Ocean

The highlight of this partnership is the seamless integration of Swarm Lightnode with Digital Ocean’s infrastructure. Users can now easily deploy Swarm Lightnodes using either the Digital Ocean control panel or the Digital Ocean API, accommodating a broad range of applications from small projects to large-scale enterprise solutions.

Getting Started with Swarm Lightnode

Deploying a Swarm Lightnode has never been easier. Here’s how you can get started:

  • API Creation: In addition to deployment via the Digital Ocean control panel, the Digital Ocean API facilitates the creation of Swarm Lightnode Droplets.
  • Simple Deployment: To deploy a 4GB Swarm Lightnode Droplet in the NYC3 region, you can use the following curl command. Ensure to replace $TOKEN with your API access token.
        curl -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
         -H 'Authorization: Bearer '$TOKEN'' -d \
         '{"name":"choose_a_name","region":"nyc3","size":"s-2vcpu-4gb","image":"swarmfoundation-swarmlightnode"}' \
