IPFS Cluster is an open-source, distributed application that works as a side-kick for the IPFS daemon. It allows to coordinate multiple daemons to backup a single list of content (pinset). This includes cloud deployments to ensure availability and reliability of content in the ipfs network as well as loose clusters to backup interesting items (i.e. cat pictures) in a collaborative fashion among volunteers willing to provide some disk space.

Type: workshop
Length: 1 hour and 30 minutes
Language: english
Additional considerations: Max number of participants 20.

Session Objective

  • This workship will allow participants to setup and use IPFS Cluster to coordinate a replicate content among multiple IPFS daemons;
  • Participants will learn how to run IPFS Cluster peers
  • Participants will learn how to interact with IPFS Cluster peers
  • Participants will learn how to integrate on top of IPFS Cluster peers

Material and Technical Requirements

To take full advantage of this workshop, participants should:

  • Have some familiarity with IPFS concepts (pinning, adding to IPFS, IPFS API)
  • Have some familiarity with libp2p concepts (peers, swarm)
  • Have some familiarity with working on the command line, extracting tarballs and running binaries.
  • A computer or laptop running go-ipfs will be necessary to install and play with IPFS Cluster. If you do not have it, you can pair with someone that has it.

Additional technical requirements:

  • Projector
  • It would me most useful to have a Wifi network that supports IPFS well and participants can connect to for the workshop. We can run an ad-hoc network with a router if necessary (I could bring it).

As organizers we strive for low-cost pathways of participation, are you interested in a community billet program either hosting out-of-towners or staying with locals?
