<p class=MsoNormal>I&#8217;ve finally persuaded my line manager to let me have a
virtual server to test EPrints possibly to replace our current commercial
repository software.<o:p></o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal>Our IT service has asked for &nbsp;vCPUs, RAM and Disk
requirements in order to cost the project. Also any other specs I might need to
emphasise &#8211; MySQL etc. Is anybody able to advise?<o:p></o:p></p>
