System requirements

The general configuration for running a Polygon full node is to have at least 4 CPUs/cores and 16 GB of RAM.

In terms of space, for a full node you’ll need from 2.5 to 5 terabytes of SSD (or faster) storage.

Available ports

The peer exchange for a Polygon full node generally depends on port 30303 and 26656 being open. When you configure your firewall or security groups for AWS, make sure these ports are open along with whatever ports you need to access the machine.
