Selecting the optimal server type

For the Frontend (FE), we recommend a total CPU core count of 8 and over 16GB of memory. For the Backend (BE), a total CPU core count of 16, with over 64GB of memory, will work best. It’s important to note that the CPU of the BE server needs to support the AVX2 instruction set to leverage StarRocks’ vectorization technology.

In addition, your hardware should include a 10 Gigabit Ethernet card and a compatible 10 Gigabit switch for smooth networking.
