GuideAlpine Linux OS RPi Cardano Node

Set up and run a Cardano Node on a very lightweight Linux distribution.

Why use AlpineOS on the Raspberry Pi?

  • Very low memory consumption (~50MB utilized during idle vs ~350MB for Ubuntu 20.04).
  • Lower CPU overhead (27 tasks/ 31 threads active for Alpine vs 57 tasks / 111 threads for Ubuntu when cardano-node is running).
  • Cooler Pi 😎 (Literally, CPU runs cooler❄️ because of the lower CPU overhead).
  • And finally, why not? If you're gonna use static binaries, might as well take advantage of a fully static operating system like AlpineOS 😜
