    *You can reduce the CPU and RAM resources below the Minimum Specifications for development and testing purposes. Resources can be as low as 1 GB of free RAM beyond operating system requirements, and a single CPU core. However, you must adhere to the Minimum Specifications for production.

    **The Recommended Specifications don’t take into account your intended workload. You should follow the sizing guidelines when determining system specifications for your Couchbase Server deployment.
