Article summary

This article provides Docker host requirements for both configuring a virtual machine via a hypervisor and deploying directly onto hardware. These specifications are pivotal for optimal performance and compatibility.

  • CPU requirements should meet a minimum clock speed of 2.4 GHz

  • The CPU architecture must support 64-bit computing

  • Virtual cores must be mapped 1:1 to a CPU hyper-thread (If a Docker host is being deployed on hypervisor)

  • Network requirements dictate a minimum port speed of 100 Mbps (1Gbps/sec is recommended)

CPU Requirements

  • Skylight orchestrator requires to be assigned a minimum of 6 virtual cores

For information on requirements, see Docker Deployment Profile Configuration.

Memory Requirements

  • Skylight orchestrator requires to be assigned a minimum of 30 GB of RAM

For information on requirements, see Docker Deployment Profile Configuration.

Disk Requirements

  • In all cases, disk storage must be backed by SSD drives. Startup and upgrade issues can arise if slower drives are used.

For information on requirements, see Docker Disk Configuration.
