# Hardware requirements

Running a full Terra node is a resource-intensive process that requires a persistent server. If you want to just use the Terra blockchain without downloading the entire blockchain, see Terra Station (opens new window).

We recommend the following hardware to run a full node:

  • Four or more CPU cores
  • At least 2 TB of disk storage
  • At least 32 GB of memory
  • At least 300 mbps of network bandwidth
