Hello, it's me again

Would orchard run on 512MB of ram?

What would be miniminiminimum requirements?

Would it work on SQL 2008 Express?

I don't think you can even run recent versions of Windows on 512MB. Do you mean that's the whole memory you have on the computer?

SQL Express is fine.

Thank you, what minimum requirements you think would be?

I was thinking about Micro or small, what do you guys think?

Instance Types

Standard Instances

Instances of this family are well suited for most applications.

  • Small Instance (Default) 1.7 GB of memory, 1 EC2 Compute Unit (1 virtual core with 1 EC2 Compute Unit), 160 GB of local instance storage, 32-bit platform
  • Large Instance 7.5 GB of memory, 4 EC2 Compute Units (2 virtual cores with 2 EC2 Compute Units each), 850 GB of local instance storage, 64-bit platform
  • Extra Large Instance 15 GB of memory, 8 EC2 Compute Units (4 virtual cores with 2 EC2 Compute Units each), 1690 GB of local instance storage, 64-bit platform

Micro Instances

Instances of this family provide a small amount of consistent CPU resources and allow you to burst CPU capacity when additional cycles are available. They are well suited for lower throughput applications and web sites that consume significant compute cycles periodically.

  • Micro Instance 613 MB of memory, up to 2 ECUs (for short periodic bursts), EBS storage only, 32-bit or 64-bit platform

I don't know, we've never tried it on EC2.
