Hardware requirements

Before installing StorageGRID Webscale software, verify and configure hardware so that it is ready to support the StorageGRID Webscale system.

The following table lists the supported minimum resource requirements for each StorageGRID Webscale node.

Type of node CPU cores RAM
Admin 8 24 GB
Storage 8 24 GB
API Gateway 8 24 GB
Archive 8 24 GB

Use the values in the table to ensure that the number of StorageGRID Webscale nodes you plan to run on each physical or virtual host does not exceed the number of CPU cores or physical RAM available to each host. If the hosts are not dedicated to running StorageGRID Webscale, be sure to consider the resources requirements of the other applications.

Note: If you are using virtual machines as hosts and have control over the size and number of VMs, you should use a single VM for each StorageGRID Webscale node and size the VM according to the table.
Note: For production deployments, you should not run multiple Storage Nodes on the same physical or virtual host. Each Storage Node in a single StorageGRID Webscale deployment should be in its own isolated failure domain. You can maximize the durability and availability of object data if you ensure that a single hardware failure can only impact a single Storage Node.
