I would like to be able to demo a UEC cloud at a presentation. Is there a simple guide regarding the hardware I need, and how I need to configure the UEC in order to create a nice presentation?

These are the minimum requirements (for a one-machine setup) for setting up an Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud:

  • Machine: at least 1 (though 2 or 3 is highly recommended, to separate controllers and nodes)
  • CPU: +2Ghz (dual core recommended)
  • Memory: +2Gb ram
  • Disk Space: 100Gb

Note that with those minimum specs, this will still be SLOW.

You can find a quick tutorial located at:
