- Minimum Linux server system requirements
- Local installation: 512 MiB RAM, 512 MiB Swap recommended
- 2 GiB available disk space (more recommended, 8.5 GiB for all patterns)
- 16 GiB for snapshot/rollback of the OS
- Recommendations for specific uses
- 512 MiB to 4 GiB RAM, at least 256 MiB per CPU
- 4 GiB hard disk space, 16 GiB for snapshot/rollback of the OS
- Network interface (ethernet, wireless or modem)
- Network redundancy
- I/O fencing mechanism and possibly shared storage
- For Xen virtual host server ? at least 512 MiB RAM for each virtual host server
- For KVM virtual host server ? KVM's limits are equal to those of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server
- For Xen or KVM virtual machines ? at least an additional 256 MiB RAM for each virtual machine
- For print servers ? a relatively faster processor or additional processors to improve server-based printing
- For web servers ? additional RAM to improve caching, and additional processors to improve web application performance
- For database servers ? additional RAM to improve caching, and using multiple disks for parallel I/O
- For file servers ? additional memory and disks, or a Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks (RAID) system to improve I/O throughput
