My laptop has 2GB RAM and I can develop/debug Azure application in it without problem. So 2GB RAM is sufficient for Azure development. Please note that the Compute emulator and Storage Emulator may need some time to start in first time if they are not already
running. When Storage Emulator starts in the very first time after installation, it will need some time to initialize storage database in local SQL Server.
> Does the emulator require alot of space when running apps?
