Kubernetes Cluster Hardware Requirements and Recommendations

Kubernetes Master Node Requirements

  • Minimum Specifications:

    • 8 CPUs
    • 16 GB RAM
    • 50 GB Disk
  • Recommended Specifications:

    • 16 CPUs
    • 32 GB RAM
    • 100 GB Disk

Kubernetes Worker Node Requirements

  • Minimum Specifications:

    • 4 CPUs
    • 8 GB RAM
    • 100 GB Disk
  • Recommendations:

    • The more resources available, the better the performance, especially for handling a higher number of concurrent deployments.
    • It is crucial to maximize CPU capacity. For instance, with 8 CPUs, 100 GB RAM, and 2 TB storage, the CPU would likely be the bottleneck. Since people tend to deploy at least 1 CPU per deployment, the server could only host 8 deployments maximum and likely about 6 deployments as other ~2 CPUs will be reserved by the Kubernetes system components.
