# Information Regarding SGX Compliance for VPS options and the Secret Network

This is intended to guide you in selecting SGX compliant VPS options for the Secret Network mainnet.

Note. When renting a compliant bare metal machine from a VPS provider, ensure you do not accept any chassis or CPU substitutes they propose, unless those substitutes are on the Hardware Compliance list.

Note all cost estimates are based this off the following recommendations:
- Processor: E-series rather than E3 (due to age)
- SSD: 1TB+
- RAM: 16GB+ (discussions appear to be happening that 32GB may be required)

Just because a VPS is cheaper does *NOT* necessarily make it better.
