System Requirements

Minimum Linux server system requirements for installation
Local Installation: 512 MB RAM
Secure Shell (SSH)-based network install, graphical: 512 MB RAM
Virtual Network Computing (VNC)-based network install using File Transfer Protocol (FTP): 512 MB RAM

Minimum Linux server system requirements for operation
512 MB RAM
750 MB hard disk space for software
750 MB hard disk space for user data

Recommendations for specific uses
512 MB to 4 GB RAM, at least 256 MB per CPU
4 GB hard-disk space
Network interface (Ethernet, wireless or modem)
For Xen virtual host server—atleast 512 MB RAM for each virtual host server
For KVM virtual host server—the limits are equal to those of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server
For Xen or KVM virtual machines—atleast an additional 256 MB 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

Swap size will depend on amount of RAM, etc..
