Minimum Hardware Configuration
This is the minimum hardware configuration required to setup a full node:
- RAM: 16-32 GB
- CPU: 8-16 core CPU (For AWS: c5.2xlarge)
- Storage: 6TB to 8TB SSD (make sure it is extendable)
The minimum storage requirements will change over time as the network grows. It is recommended to use more than the minimum requirements to run a robust full node.
While we do not favor any operating system, more secure and stable Linux server distributions (like CentOS) should be preferred over desktop operating systems (like Mac OS and Windows).
