Deploy Nodes

Before you can run a validator and validator fullnode (VFN) in an Aptos network, you will need to select a deployment method for your nodes. The guides below provide step-by-step instructions for deploying a validator node and VFN on various platforms, and across different Aptos networks.

Once your nodes are deployed, you can connect them to an Aptos network by initializing your staking pool and joining the validator set. See Connect Nodes for more information.


Before selecting a deployment method, make sure to read and understand the Node Requirements first.
