Number of Platform Nodes 3
Operating System See your Docker platform documentation for supported operating systems
Processor 4 CPU Cores
Memory 12 GBs of RAM
Storage 20 GBs for MongoDB with continued growth over extended usage (see figure below for storage guidelines), 3 GBs for RabbitMQ and all HCL Accelerate Docker containers, 4 GBs during the installation process
Network Gigabit (1000) Ethernet with low-latency to the database

MongoDB requirements

Unlike Docker Compose, the MongoDB is not installed by default and you are expected to install it separately, configure, and maintain the database. As a guideline, use the following specifications:

Note: MongoDB replica sets are supported if configured by the customer. Additional details are found here.

The figure below provides storage guidelines over time and contributors to total size.

For the above graph, estimates are calculated using real production data and with the following assumptions:

The following table details growth estimates over time based on number of apps per year.

Number of apps per year Day 1 (GB) Year 1 (GB) Year 2 (GB) Year 3 (GB)
1 0.5 4 8 13
5 2 10 17 25
10 5 16 28 41
25 12 37 62 88

The following table details estimates for environments based on number of apps.

Environment Number of apps Size (GB)
POC 1-3 20
Pilot 5-10 30
Typical onboarding 20-30 70
