Deployment Requirements

Parallels Cloud Server

Parallels Cloud Server runs on a wide variety of hardware and software configurations.

Basic system requirements include:

Server Hardware
  • Platform: x86-64 platform with Intel VT-x or AMD-V hardware virtualization support
  • CPU: 1.5 GHz or higher processor (a 64-bit processor is required for launching 64-bit guest operating systems)
  • Memory: 2 GB of RAM minimum (4 GB or more recommended)
  • Hard disk: Allocate 10-12 GB of disk space to the root (/) partition.
  • Hard disk: Format the (/vz) partition as ext4 and allocate all the remaining free space to it (no less than 30GB)
  • Network: 1 or more Ethernet cards (1 Gbit or faster)

The exact server configuration depends on how many containers or VMs you deploy on the server and the load they generate.

Software Requirements

Parallels Cloud Server is installed directly on the server hardware and does not require any additional operating system software.
