Server Requirements?


#1

For those who wish to run Talk on their own servers, is there a recommended server requirements list?

Ram, Speed, Storage, etc.? Benchmarks?


#2

We are in the process of gathering detailed benchmarks for various server configurations, but our general recommendation is that you are fine to run Talk on a general purpose server with at least 2 cpus and 8gb of ram (i.e. an m4.large instance on AWS).

Talk is not resource intensive and the comment data itself isn’t very large so you can scale your server resources up horizontally relative to the number of comments you are storing over time.

Lastly, we recommend using a 3 node replica set for Mongo and load balancing the Talk application for optimal performance.
