Learn about the prerequisite infrastructure requirements.

Coder is deployed onto Kubernetes clusters, and we recommend the following resource allocation minimums to ensure quality performance.

For basic control services, allocate at least 2 CPU cores, 4 GB of RAM, and 20 GB of storage.

For each active developer, please allocate an additional CPU core, 1 GB of RAM, and 10 GB of storage on top of the resources allocated for basic control services.

We recommend the following throughput:

  • Read: 3000 IOPS at 50 MB/s
  • Write: 3000 IOPS at 50 MB/s

Enabled Extensions

You must enable the following extensions on your K8 cluster (check whether you have these extensions enabled by running kubectl get apiservices):

  • apps/v1
  • extensions/v1beta1


Use an up-to-date browser to ensure that you can use all of Coder's features. We currently require the following versions or newer:

  • Apple Safari 12.1
  • Google Chrome 66
  • Mozilla Firefox 57
  • Microsoft Edge 79

If you're using Remote IDEs, allow pop-ups; Coder launches the Remote IDE in a pop-up window.


The use of Coder deployments requires a license that's emailed to you.


Deployments using the free level of Coder (1-10 users):

  • Must be able to reach and use an outbound internet connection (at minimum, your deployment must be able to access
  • Cannot be used to set up an air-gapped deployment
  • Must use Coder v1.10.0 or later

The above requirements do not apply to potential customers engaged in our trial program.
