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)
