The virtual appliance on which you run Application Services must meet certain hardware and software requirements. In addition, you must open certain ports for Application Services.

vCloud Director Disk Space and Memory Requirements

Application Services requires a minimum of 20 GB of disk space, 2 GB memory, and 1 vCPU with a speed of 2 GHz.

Caution:

For some organization vDCs, by default vCloud Director sometimes sets the virtual CPU to 0.24 GHz, based on the vCloud Director setup. If this setting is the default in your environment, you must set the vCPU speed to 2 GHz for the organization vDC in which the Application Services vApp is deployed. Otherwise, the performance of the Application Services virtual appliance is affected.
