Is there any minimum requirement of hard disk for Sitecore installation. I understand the database size will depend on the content but if the database is a separate server, for the CMS and CD part is there any recommended value.

I doubt you'll find any recommendation for HDD size because it totally depends on your needs, configuration and needed modules.

However, a basic Sitecore 9 installation is around 2gb without any css, js, images, custom DLLs or configs. You'll have to estimate these for your project.

You can find xDB requirements here

  • Thanks Tamer, I got hardware configuration example in the link shared by you. Jan 10, 2018 at 10:54
  • But that's for xDB specifically. Just keep that in mind.

    Yes, i understand but that gives a start figure. Hard disk can be further increased based on requirement without much effort. Jan 10, 2018 at 11:05
