I am running a low budget website, that is sitting on a windows VM with 2gb of ram.
The current memory footprint of the OS and website in total is around 1.3 gb.
The reason I want to use Elasticsearch is to have faster access to products, that currently live in a sql server. There is under 1000 products, so the document count is low, but I might want to do some aggregations for filtering etc.
Will elasticsearch work well with around 500mb of ram available? Will it even run? Is there a different product which might be a better fit for a low volume/memory document DB?
