MIDL.dev maintains the following open-source software projects to make it easy to deploy a baking setup:
The documentation for the Tezos suite can be found here.
The best known baking tools, Kiln or BakeBuddy, are complete solutions for home baking, to be installed on physical hardware. Tezos-on-GKE, in contrast, outsources most of the computing to the cloud, increasing reliability and decreasing the operating burden of the baking operations.

These projects, taken together, allow you to deploy a secure, best-practices baking operation.
The setup supports Tezos mainnet as well as Ghostnet, the long-running Tezos testnet.
We are the recipients of a Tezos foundation grant for this project. As part of this, we:
