Droplet CPU cores


Probably dumb question but i’d like to know if cpu cores number for the droplet hosting nakama is important.


@Mkarena Yes all server hardware resources you select for your instance of the game server will impact the performance of Nakama in some way: CPU, RAM, and disk IOPS. The IOPS is least important especially if you run the database server on its own separate hardware (which you should!).

For suggestions on what hardware you could use based on your cost vs performance requirements have a look at the latest server benchmarks:


If you want a production server environment configured with SSL, logs, metrics, deployment CI, database, servers, and backups. Have a look at our Heroic Cloud:
