Server-side requirements for production

To deploy and run Varbase your web server must meet certain minimum requirements. We recommend sizing your application and considering your database size, files data, and expected traffic.

Your servers' requirements will greatly be impacted by the usage of your application. For example, if you have more logged-in users that anonymous users, you will need to consider higher requirements to serve non-cached requests.
