Install hphelion CE on 8GB RAM laptop? [closed]

asked 2014-06-24 23:48:59 -0600

The link shows atleast 48GB RAM requirements even for virtual installation. Is it possible to install it in my laptop with 8GB/16GB RAM? Why such a huge RAM requirements - any explanation?

One more clarifications needed -- After the helion install can I remove the seed, undercloud, etc. but leave only one overcloud controller & one compute to use(2 VMs). Assuming I am not rebooting the machine and also VMs for a long time. Will that work with 16GB? It is kind of hard for a developer to get 48GB RAM for trying something.

No you can't install with 16GB RAM. By default it creates 5 nodes of which one is compute node. It is as good as running 5 vms in your laptop besides host
