The resources Opencast needs highly depend on what and how much material you process on your cluster and how you configured your Opencast. Thus, treat this as a sensible starting point for testing out Opencast, nothing more.
Sensible requirements for an Opencast server:
- Virtual machine
- Four cores
- 8GB of memory
Additional notes about resources:
- Video processing is hard work and mostly profits from more CPU power
- More memory is only necessary for very large installations or with some special use-cases
