System Requirements

DeepSearch does not require specific hardware or configuration - it’s primarily a CPU/RAM/disk-based workload.

Here’s what we recommend as the minimum baseline:

  • 12 cores

  • 32 GB of RAM

  • 200 Gb for a nucleus server with 1.4 Mil assets files (SSD suggested).


Most of the disk space is occupied by the Elastic Search / OpenSearch index.

If you don’t know how much disk space to allocate, start with 100 Gb and observe usage, adding disk space as required

In reality resource usage will highly depend on load.

Ultimately, we recommend monitoring the installation, and adding resources as required.

Please review the Elastic Search System requirements for configuration of the Elastic Search / OpenSearch cluster.


Installation of DeepSearch stack requires:

  • a working installation of Nucleus Enterprise Server

  • an instance of Elastic Search or OpenSearch service. Please refer to Search Backend Configuration for more information.


DeepSearch service stack is shipped in two ways as a helm chart and as a docker-compose stack to match the current shipment and distribution method of Nucleus Enterprise Server. Please refer to the following documentation for helm and docker-compose installation approaches respectively.
