How do we maintain and update our pool

Git Tag Monitoring

When IOHK tag a new version of the cardano node and cli, we automatically pull this and build it.

Automated Building

We use Teamcity to automatically compile the newly created tag.

Testing in Docker

The newly build artifacts are automatically deployed to a local docker container and tested


When we are satisfied that the testing is complete, we manualy deploy the artifacts to testnet and ensure the nodes continue to operate as expected.


When we are satisfied that there are no issues in testnet, we deploy to mainnet


Because this is mostly automated, our nodes are consistent and always upto date
