Node Setup

System requirements

The system requirements listed in this section are both for the Sentry, RPC and the Validator node.
The minimum system requirements mean you can run the nodes but the setup is not future-proof.
The recommended system requirements mean the nodes are future-proof. There is, however, no upper limit to future-proofing your nodes.
You must always run the Sentry node, RPC node and the Validator node on separate machines.
