Compute resources for development environments

For deployed instances used in a development (non-production) environment, the configured worker nodes should provide a combined total number of cores, memory, and disk space matching the minimum requirements in the table below.

Note: Because this is a minimum configuration, your system requirements will change based on actual usage. For more information on the requirements for high availability deployments, see High availability considerations.
