Our is running on a VM with

* 2GB RAM (of which over a gig is free)
* 2 (not very powerful) CPUs
* total 30GB of disk, of which EPrints and deposits are using ~14GB and Ubuntu ~7GB.

It isn't a heavyweight system.

Thanks,

I've finally persuaded my line manager to let me have a virtual server to test EPrints possibly to replace our current commercial repository software.

Our IT service has asked for  vCPUs, RAM and Disk requirements in order to cost the project. Also any other specs I might need to emphasise - MySQL etc. Is anybody able to advise?

Thanks
