Requirements for Standalone Installations
The recommended hardware requirements for running Virtuozzo Platform as a standalone installation are as follows:
- x86-64 platform with hardware virtualization support: Intel VT-x (with “unrestricted guest”)
To check if the Intel processor supports the “unrestricted guest” feature:
- get_app Download
python vmxcap.py | grep -i unrest.
The result must be
- CPU: at least 4 cores, a 64-bit processor is required for running 64-bit guest operating systems
- RAM: 4 GB or more
- HDD: 64 GB or more
- SSD (optional): at least 30 GiB (at least 32 GiB with
- Network: an Ethernet network adapter and a valid IP address.
