Recommended Hardware Specifications

System Requirements‚Äč

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.
