8 GB RAM - for initial setup and small projects

Licensing

After registration, you get a free trial license for running DevOps PaaS LE on up to 10 nodes (maximum 64 GB RAM each) for 30 days. As a result, you are paying only for Vultr instances but not for the PaaS license. After 30 days, your DevOps PaaS LE license will cost 50% of the chosen server's price.
