The recommended system requirements for running the Nimbus beacon node are:
|Operating system||Linux 64-bit, Windows 64-bit, macOS X 10.15+|
In addtion to the beacon node, you will need to run an execution client - check the documentation of the client of choice and add them to the above requirements.
Broadly, to run both an execution and a consensus client on the same machine, we recommend a 2 TB SSD drive and 8 GB RAM.
Nimbus has been optimized to also run well on hardware significantly less powerful than the recommended system requirements - the more validators you run on the same node, the more hardware resources and network bandwidth will it will use.
