System requirements for the external database (Kubernetes)

  • Last updated: March 27, 2024

  • Read time: 1 Minute

No matter which deployment method you choose, we recommend that you use an external database. The external database stores the accumulated data from your scans. The required size depends on the number of scans that you perform and the number of issues found.

The following table indicates the quantity of data that you are likely to accumulate:

Number of scans Data storage
1,000 500 MB
10,000 5 GB
100,000 50 GB

Supported database versions

The following external database versions are fully supported:

Type Supported versions
MariaDB 10.2, 10.3, 10.4, 10.5, 10.6
Microsoft SQL server 2014, 2016, 2017, 2019
MySQL 5.7, 8
Oracle 12.2, 18c, 19c
PostgreSQL 11, 12, 13, 14.2, 15


AWS Aurora databases are not supported.

Database hardware requirements

The size of your database instance depends on the number of concurrent scans that you want to run, and the type of database.

For a database instance such as AWS RDS, we recommend a minimum of 2 vCPUs and 8GB RAM, for example a db.t3.large instance.

If you need help with the system requirements, please email our support team.
