Recommended Hardware Configuration
for SQream DB

While SQream DB can run on any NVIDIA GPU-enabled hardware, we have some recommendations to achieve the best performance

On-premise Standalone

This configuration is the simplest. Get started with SQream DB with a single-box solution, that has both storage and compute in one convenient package
