I'll update the getting started requirements to include the following
size of 100G.

I don't think it's a hard rule it is just the hardware I have at the
time. I'm fixing a few things today and will test on my laptop's once
I upgrade them to xenial. I can update that section of the site once I
figure out the minimal requirements
I think RAM is much more likely to be critical than cores. We should
also advise the use of an SSD because IO is a big bottleneck when you
are firing up many containers at the same time.
Sorry, my last note got blocked to the list as I sent from my phone....
Here's some real data, from an actively deployed and running
conjure-up openstack instance...
- I have conjure-up working with 16GB of memory, though I'm pretty
heavily pegged (79% used), so I'd recommend some swap space in
addition (I used 32GB, which is 16% used).
- I have conjure-up working on a Thinkpad laptop, with 2xi7 cores
(hyperthreaded to 4 effective cores). I've pegged the CPU frequency
at max (2.9GHz). Idling now, I'm running at 1.32 system load (33% cpu
usage). There are over 1191 active processes running, across the host
OS and 16 LXD containers.
- I have conjure-up working with SSD storage. A small root filesystem
(20GB is plenty sufficient, and uses 4.8GB for all of my Ubuntu 16.04
LTS desktop). I used a healthily sized zpool with an SSD backed block
device (100GB allocated, 25.1GB used).
Hopefully this helps.
