Assets, Cores, and Disk Space

Portfolio’s ability to deliver assets to your users depends on the resources available to it. Your server should have at least 16GB of RAM and at least gigabit networking. In general, “more” and “faster” are desirable when describing server resources. We recommend the following, depending on the size of your catalogs:

Assets
