Install Ravada with a Script

Requirements

OS

This Script only works on Ubuntu and Fedora.

Hardware

It depends on the number and type of virtual machines. For common scenarios are server memory, storage and network bandwidth the most critical requirements.

Memory

RAM is the main issue. Multiply the number of concurrent workstations by the amount of memory each one requires and that is the total RAM the server must have.

Disks

The faster the disks, the better. Ravada uses incremental files for the disks images, so clones won’t require many space.
