Recommended Hardware Specifications
The following hardware specifications are recommended for the Casper Mainnet and Testnet:
- 4 Cores
- 32 GB Ram
- 2 TB SSD or network SSD backed disk
- Linux machine running Ubuntu 20.04
- SSD is required because HDD cannot perform random writes at the performance needed to keep in sync with the full speed of the network.
- For non-archival nodes, disc usage will drop once data recovery is implemented. It is safe to slowly increase the disc space as needed while monitoring on a server capable of this.
