Hi,
I want to run a Binance Smart chain node on the cloud.
Details here: https://docs.binance.org/smart-chain/developer/fullnode.html

Requirements (from details page):
VPS running recent versions of Mac OS X or Linux.
500 GB of free disk space
4 cores of CPU and 8 gigabytes of memory (RAM).
A broadband Internet connection with upload/download speeds of at least 1 megabyte per second

Which DigitalOcean product should I go for and why? I am new to cloud computing so any and all help would be appreciated.

Hi there,

What I could suggest here is using the $40/mo Droplet as it covers your RAM and CPU requirements:

  • 8 GB
  • 4 CPUs

For the 500GB Disk requirements, I would recommend adding a 500GB block storage to the Droplet:

With that you will fully cover the requirements.
