CKAN runs on a server of normal capacity, but what does that mean?
For a small to medium CKAN instance, the following has been suggested as a minimum for each machine:
- 2 CPU cores
- 4 GB of RAM
- 60 GB of disk space
If you wish to run both frontend and backend on the same machine, you will almost certainly want to use 4(+) CPU cores.
You do not want to be constrained by disk IO, often a case with budget hosting providers (
iostat -x -m 10 100 may be useful -- but ignore the first few lines)
