AWS EC2 deployments have specific technical and sizing requirements, and a set of Cortex XSOAR best practices.
After you configure and verify your AWS EC2 deployment, install the Cortex XSOAR Server.
Supported AWS EC2 Instance Types
Cortex XSOAR server installation is supported on the following Amazon EC2 instance types.
Only use this instance type for evaluation and testing.
Supported EC2 Storage
We recommend that you use EBS-optimized2 instances (included in C4,M4 instance family types).
Minimum disk space for production environment is 500 GB.
Network and Security
Inbound connections: Cortex XSOAR server requires that you open HTTPS port 443 for inbound connections.
Outbound connections: outbound ports depending on your integrations and specific requirements. By default, AWS opens all traffic.
Cortex XSOAR supports server installation on these Linux distributions.
You can use Amazon EBS snapshots3 to back up your AWS EC2 instances. Use snapshots for incremental backups, point-in-time restoration, and to view history data.
