# Hardware
IPFire is very versatile and running on many different kinds of hardware. Those can be 19"-rack-mounted servers as well as small boxes that fit on the palm of a hand.
## Requirements (Recommended)
| Processor | x86 CPU with 1 GHz or better or a [supported ARM SBC](./arm) |
| Memory | 1GB or greater |
| Storage | at least 4GB of harddisk storage |
| Network | at least two Ethernet network adapters |
