    Default zimbra on EC2 instance from amazon

    I just setup a test version of zimbra (beta version ) on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS runing on m1.large amazon EC2 instance.
    All is runing very well without any performance issue
    but .. for a small usage configurations and ressources of this 64bits instance seams to be too expensive
    On virtualized system, may I use zimbra with an instance with only 613Mb ram ?
    Amazon offer an confirguration (t1.micro) available for 32 and 64 bits system but with only 613Mb ram
    Do you have some experience about this choice (cloud choice and so ..)

    I'm afraid that 613MB of RAM is nowhere near enough to run Zimbra, check the System Requirements page in the Documentation: System Requirements for Zimbra Collaboration Suite 6.0

    well if its free and you have time..just install it and tweek the configurations to take less ram and stop logger and other services like AS/AV for testing
    it will not be a production worthy but it will install

    * try 32 bit version of zimbra just for sake of it

    thanks, it's confirmation on what a had read about requirement... For using EC2 instance in the cloud offer of amazon, I must keep my first option with more RAM and CPU and try to share this machine with my other web services to host on the same system my websites.
