Deploy Provider

About Provider

Provider encrypts the URL and metadata during publishing and decrypts the URL when the dataset is downloaded or a compute job is started. It enables access to the data assets by streaming data (and never the URL). It performs checks on-chain for buyer permissions and payments. It also provides compute services (connects to a C2D environment).

Provider is a multichain component, meaning that it can handle these tasks on multiple chains with the proper configurations. The source code of Provider can be accessed from here.

As mentioned in the Setup a Server document, all Ocean components can be deployed in two types of configurations: simple, based on Docker Engine and Docker Compose, and complex, based on Kubernetes with Docker Engine. In this document, we will present how to deploy Provider in each of these configurations.

Deploying Provider using Docker Engine and Docker Compose

In this guide, we will deploy Provider for two chains: Goerli (Ethereum test network) and Mumbai (Polygon test network). Therefore, please note that in the following configuration files, "5" and "80001" are the chain IDs for Goerli and Mumbai respectively.

Prerequisites

  • A server for hosting Provider. See this guide for how to create a server;

  • Docker Compose and Docker Engine are installed and configured on the server. See this guide for how to install these products.

  • The RPC URLs and API keys for each of the networks to which the Provider will be connected. See this guide for how to obtain the URL and the API key.

  • The private key which will be used by Provider to encrypt/decrypt URLs.

Steps

The steps to deploy the Provider using Docker Engine and Docker Compose are:

1. Create the /etc/docker/compose/provider/docker-compose.yml file

From a terminal console, create /etc/docker/compose/provider/docker-compose.yml file, then copy and paste the following content to it. Check the comments in the file and replace the fields with the specific values of your implementation.

version: '3'
services:
  provider:
    image: oceanprotocol/provider-py:latest =>(check on https://hub.docker.com/r/oceanprotocol/provider-py for specific tag)
    container_name: provider
    restart: on-failure
    ports:
      - 8030:8030
    networks:
      backend:
    environment:
      ARTIFACTS_PATH: "/ocean-contracts/artifacts"
      NETWORK_URL: '{"5":"https://goerli.infura.io/v3/<your INFURA project id>","80001":"https://polygon-mumbai.infura.io/v3/<your INFURA project id>"}'
      PROVIDER_PRIVATE_KEY: '{"5":"<your private key>","80001":"<your private key"}'
      LOG_LEVEL: DEBUG
      OCEAN_PROVIDER_URL: 'http://0.0.0.0:8030'
      OCEAN_PROVIDER_WORKERS: "1"
      IPFS_GATEWAY: "< your IPFS gateway >"
      OCEAN_PROVIDER_TIMEOUT: "9000"
      OPERATOR_SERVICE_URL: "https://stagev4.c2d.oceanprotocol.com" => (use custom value for Operator Service URL)
      AQUARIUS_URL: "http//localhost:5000" => (use custom value Aquarius URL)
      REQUEST_TIMEOUT: "10"
networks:
  backend:
    driver: bridge

2. Create the /etc/systemd/system/[email protected] file

Create the /etc/systemd/system/[email protected] file then copy and paste the following content to it. This example file could be customized if needed.

[Unit]
Description=%i service with docker compose
Requires=docker.service
After=docker.service

[Service]
Type=oneshot
RemainAfterExit=true
Environment="PROJECT=ocean"
WorkingDirectory=/etc/docker/compose/%i
ExecStartPre=/usr/bin/env docker-compose -p $PROJECT pull
ExecStart=/usr/bin/env docker-compose -p $PROJECT up -d
ExecStop=/usr/bin/env docker-compose -p $PROJECT stop


[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

3. Reload the systemd manager configuration

Run the following command to reload the systemd manager configuration

sudo systemctl daemon-reload

Optionally, you can enable the services to start at boot, using the following command:

sudo systemctl enable [email protected]

4. Start the Provider service

To start the Provider service, run the following command:

sudo systemctl start [email protected]

5. Check the service's status

Check the status of the service by running the following command. The output of the command should be similar to the one presented here.

$ sudo systemctl status [email protected]
● [email protected] - provider service with docker compose
     Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/[email protected]; disabled; vendor preset: enabled)
     Active: active (exited) since Wed 2023-06-14 09:41:53 UTC; 20s ago

Jun 14 09:41:53 testvm systemd[1]: Finished provider service with docker compose.

6. Confirm the Provider is accessible

Once started, the Provider service is accessible on localhost port 8030/tcp. Run the following command to access the Provider. The output should be similar to the one displayed here.

$ curl localhost:8030
{"chainIds":[5,80001],"providerAddresses":{"5":"0x00c6A0BC5cD0078d6Cd0b659E8061B404cfa5704","80001":"0x4256Df50c94D9a7e04610976cde01aED91eB531E"},"serviceEndpoints":{"computeDelete":["DELETE","/api/services/compute"],"computeEnvironments":["GET","/api/services/computeEnvironments"],"computeResult":["GET","/api/services/computeResult"],"computeStart":["POST","/api/services/compute"],"computeStatus":["GET","/api/services/compute"],"computeStop":["PUT","/api/services/compute"],"create_auth_token":["GET","/api/services/createAuthToken"],"decrypt":["POST","/api/services/decrypt"],"delete_auth_token":["DELETE","/api/services/deleteAuthToken"],"download":["GET","/api/services/download"],"encrypt":["POST","/api/services/encrypt"],"fileinfo":["POST","/api/services/fileinfo"],"initialize":["GET","/api/services/initialize"],"initializeCompute":["POST","/api/services/initializeCompute"],"nonce":["GET","/api/services/nonce"],"validateContainer":["POST","/api/services/validateContainer"]},"software":"Provider","version":"2.0.2"}

7. Check Provider service logs

If needed, use docker CLI to check provider service logs.

First, identify the container id:

$ docker ps
CONTAINER ID   IMAGE                              COMMAND                  CREATED          STATUS              PORTS                                       NAMES
594415b13f8c   oceanprotocol/provider-py:v2.0.2   "/ocean-provider/doc…"   12 minutes ago   Up About a minute   0.0.0.0:8030->8030/tcp, :::8030->8030/tcp   provider

Then, check the logs from the Provider's docker container:

$ docker logs --follow provider

Deploying Provider using Kubernetes with Docker Engine

In this example, we will run Provider as a Kubernetes deployment resource. We will deploy Provider for two chains: Goerli (Ethereum test network) and Mumbai (Polygon test network). Therefore, please note that in the following configuration files, "5" and "80001" are the chain IDs for Goerli and Mumbai respectively.

Prerequisites

  • A server for hosting Ocean Marketplace. See this guide for how to create a server;

  • Kubernetes with Docker Engine is installed and configured on the server. See this chapter for information on installing Kubernetes.

  • The RPC URLs and API keys for each of the networks to which the Provider will be connected. See this guide for how to obtain the URL and the API key.

  • The private key that will be used by Provider to encrypt/decrypt URLs.

  • Aquarius is up and running

Steps

The steps to deploy the Provider in Kubernetes are:

1. Create a YAML file for Provider configuration.

2. Deploy the configuration.

3. Create a Kubernetes service.

1. Create a YAML file for Provider configuration.

From a terminal window, create a YAML file (in our example the file is named provider-deploy.yaml) then copy and paste the following content. Check the comments in the file and replace the fields with the specific values of your implementation (RPC URLs, the private key etc.).

Tip: before deployment, you can validate the yaml file.

2. Deploy the configuration

Deploy the configuration in Kubernetes using the following commands.

kubectl config set-context --current --namespace ocean
kubectl apply -f provider-deploy.yaml
deployment.apps/provider created

kubectl get pod -l app=provider
NAME                        READY   STATUS    RESTARTS   AGE
provider-865cb8cf9d-r9xm4   1/1     Running   0          67s

3. Create a Kubernetes service

The next step is to create a Kubernetes service (eg. ClusterIP, NodePort, Loadbalancer, ExternalName) for this deployment, depending on the environment specifications. Follow this link for details on how to create a Kubernetes service.
