  1. TripleO QuickStart (Mitaka) would work on VIRTHOST ( CPU i7(5) Haswell or latter Kernel based && 32 GB RAM )
    32 GB is a must
  2. RDO AIO packstack install (Newton, Mitaka ) would work with CPU Core2Duo 8400 or Q9550 (may be less) 8 GB RAM <br)<br>
    See RDO QuickStart Page.
    Any RH deployment system creates openstack services , Ubuntu's Devstack creates a bunch of daemons, restarting those causes some pain a kind of reverting git commit disabling rejoin_stack.sh (cinder would be supposed to suffer after this step as far as I remember)

Hi, Thanks for your answer. Can you please suggest with the hard disk requirement as well?

And also please check my configuration below and review if this works:

I3 processor, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD

Try packstack on i3. Any TripleO for VENV ( instack-virt-setup or QuickStart ) needs at least 4 Core (i5) CPU.
Personally , I worked with Intel Xeons (8 Cores,16 threads). No idea what they did in Haswell vs Ivy(Sandy) bridges generations. But it is serious advantage
