    @UQS4LDZU7 HDD is OK but it will not perform well, definitely do not use HDD to show it to whoever is making decisions in your company to use Spryker or not, because the slowness of it will kill the idea of it being implemented.

    Most of hosting companies use SSD now, and considering how PHP contains and uses A LOT I/O on disk files on each request you should consider buying yourself an SSD as well.

    if you have HDD, make sure you have enough ram to NOT use swapfiles

    otherwise docker will kill your workstation ;]

  • With OpCache enabled there should not be a lot of I/O so it should not make a big difference

    Well, to be serious, finally it will be SSD.

  • bump up the memory an try to serve as much from there as you can, when we ar talking about custom hardware configuration

    and usually you do better with more smaller nodes than few big ones

    Aha. Good to know. I will reach this out to our devops

  • and are you going bare metal?

  • or cloud?

  • there are only few scenarios where you need really big processing nodes, like import processes, but even those can be scaled out horizontally
