# Types

Chainstack currently supports deploying a Solana node of the following types:

  • Elastic - a highly scalable public network node infrastructure accessed through your exclusive endpoint.
  • Dedicated - a dedicated node that is exclusive to you. This is currently only available when on Chainstack Cloud.

With an elastic node, you pay for JSON-RPC requests to the node and do not pay for the compute and storage resources used by the node.

With a dedicated node, you pay for the compute and storage resources used by the node and do not pay for JSON-RPC requests to the node.
