The Octopus Deploy Server is software that you download and install on one of your own servers, just like you would install Microsoft SQL Server. The Octopus Deploy Server:

  • runs as a Windows Service
  • has an embedded database
  • has an embedded HTTP server which presents the main Octopus user interface (the Octopus Web Portal)


Your Octopus Deploy server requires:

  • Windows Server 2008, 2008 R2, 2012 or 2012 R2 ("Server with a GUI" install, not Server Core)
  • .NET Framework 4.0+ (download)
  • Hardware:
    • Absolute minimum to make it run: 512MB RAM, 1GHz CPU, 2GB free disk space
    • Recommended for smaller deployments (less than 30 Tentacles for example): 2GB RAM, dual-core CPU, 10GB free disk space
    • Recommended for larger deployments: 4GB RAM, dual-core, 20GB free disk space

    `Sever with a GUI' should probably be `Server with a GUI'.
