Supported Architectures

AMD64 and ARM architecture are supported.

Supported Operating Systems

Debian based servers are supported, due to the installation script (Coolify itself supports every OS that could run a Docker Engine). If you would like to have other, please consider open an issue on GitHub.


Minimum required resources for Coolify:

  • 2 CPUs
  • 2 GBs memory
  • 30+ GB of storage for the images.

Additional Resources

Based on what you would like to run with Coolify, additional resources (CPU, memory, disk) are needed.

Self-hosting could be heavy if you would like to run a lot of things.

For example, I’m hosting most of my production stuffs on a server with:

  • 8GB of memory (average usage 3.5GB)
  • 4 CPUs (average usage ~20-30%)
  • 150GB disk (usage 40GB)

Hosting the following things:

  • 3 NodeJS apps
  • 4 Static sites
  • Plausible Analytics (for visitor analytics)
  • Fider (feedback tool)
  • UptimeKuma (uptime monitoring)
  • Ghost (my newsletters)
  • 3 Redis databases
  • 2 PostgreSQL databases

All static sites and one of the NodeJS applications are cached on BunnyCDN, so the usage is super low on my server.

Resources for building images

Coolify builds images in two places.

  • Local server with Local Docker Engine (the server you installed Coolify on).

  • Remote Server with Remote Docker Engine (the server you added as a Destination).

These servers have higher CPU usage on build time, so if you have 1 CPU, it will be a bottleneck!
