SQL Server 2008 minimum RAM Configuration?


  • I have SQL Server 2008 on a Windows Machine (64 bit OS) 2 Xeon CPUs 2.4 GHz each and 48 Giga of RAM.

    There are 3 dataware house databases about 30 to 45 Gigabytes each that are being used for analytic purposes.

    SQL Server and MS Visual Studio are the only Applications that we use on this Machine.

    Now I want to setup a separate lower budget test machine where I can copy and run the same databases.

    What is the minimum of RAM needed to reasonably work with the test machine in my case? Would 10 or 20 Giga suffice?
