What is "nice to have" system requirements for self-hosted?


I’m gonna create n8n in a ubuntu 22.04 X64 linux server.

What is the recommended system requirements for a server that only runs n8n in it?

  • n8n will only run 3-4 workflows and listen mails, send mails etc

Is this enough for example?


Yep, should be sufficient from the looks of it and based on your description (it is in fact more memory than you’d get on an n8n cloud Start instance for example).

If you’re looking for more but don’t want to spend a lot of money you might want to check out OCI.


If you intend to scale up your instance at some point, I recommend having more RAM. From my usage, having multiple active workflows/lot of workflows consumes more RAM on my server, but it doesn’t seem to be your case at the moment, so you should be fine

Have fun building workflows
