Minimum requirements for RavenDB to run in embedded mode

  • 512 MB of RAM
  • Pentium III-class, 700MHz
  • 150 MB of disk space
  • 32 bit OS

Those are the absolute minimum requirements for it to run. Please note that this is strictly for embedded mode, usually for dedicated devices such as Point of Sales systems where the amount of data and the number of queries are known in advance and the system has been configured specifically to allow that.
