Create a VM for Fuel

Hardware requirement

For a production: Quad-core CPU 4 GB RAM 10 Gigabit network port Disk size depends on the number of deployed nodes. All nodes send logs to the Fuel Master node using rsyslog. During installation, Fuel creates a separate partition for /var to store the remote logs and allocates 40% of the disk size to it. Our recommendation for the remote logs partition is 20 GB per node. If you deploy 10 nodes with Fuel, you need to have a (20 x 10) x 2.5 = 500 GB disk for the Fuel Master node. IPMI access through an independent management network

For a testing environment: Dual-core CPU 2 GB RAM 1 Gigabit network port 50 GB disk Physical console access
