Validator Node System Requirements

Overview

The system requirements listed in this section are both for the sentry node and the validator node.

The minimum system requirements mean you can run the nodes but the setup is not future-proof.

The recommended system requirements mean the nodes are future-proof. There is, however, no upper limit to future-proofing your nodes.

You must always run the sentry node and the validator node on separate machines.
