    Default VM Requirements for Small Business

    Hi Everybody,

    We're a small business with about 10-12 mailboxes, 10 desktop connections and 20-25 IMAP/CardDAV/CalDAV connections. Mailbox size is (on average) about 50MB but one or two mailboxes are nearly 2GB.

    I currently have ZCS 8.0.1 FOSS installed on Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS on a Virtualbox VM for testing, I've allocated 4GB of RAM and two CPU cores.

    Will this be enough for production usage? Idle RAM usage is nearly 50% and I'm not sure if this is just Java or under-compensation.

    Thanks in advance!

Depending on how many cores your server has you (probably) won't need two dedicated to ZCS, check the wiki document on Tuning for a Virtual environment for details.
