UniFi - Recommended Minimum System Requirements


These are the minimum system requirements for the UniFi Controller to run optimally.

Operating System:

  • Ubuntu Desktop / Server 14.04 or later (LTS Releases, 16.04 recommended)
  • Debian 7 “Wheezy” or later (LTS Releases, 8 recommended)
  • macOS Mavericks 10.9 or later (10.12 recommended)
  • Windows 7 or later (10 recommended)
  • Windows Server 2008 or later (2016 recommended)

CPU: x86-64 Processor (Intel / AMD x64 Processors)*

RAM: 1GB for Headless Servers; 2GB for GUI*

Network: 100Mbps Wired Ethernet*

HDD: Minimum 10GB free (20GB or more preferred)*

Java: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 8

Web Browser: Google Chrome

MongoDB: version 2.6.10. (Mongo is offered bundled, so most users will not need to acquire separately. Some distros might use a slightly older version, but v2.6.10 is the one typicallybundled in the Windows/Mac packages, and hence what we will recommend here).

For database repair you require free space equal to the current database size, plus 2GB.
