Specify 7 - Minimum recommended server specifications

For a containerized instance of Specify-7, what are the minimum recommended server specifications? Sufficient RAM to ensure smooth operation? Sufficient CPU capable of handling the application’s processing needs? Adequate disk space for MariaDB and Specify-7 data?
Thanks

The minimal resources I have tested a single instance of Specify 7 on had 2 2.5GHz CPUs, 4 GB of RAM, and 20 GB of storage. I usually like to configure about 8 GB of swap memory, which can be usefully during large workbench uploads. You might be able to get away with running on less RAM if you are running just one Specify 7 instance, but these specs should be safe. The storage space for the database depends on your data size.
