vSphere Replication VM Requirements

In a recent VMWare design I included the vSphere 5.1 Replication component as a standalone Virtual Appliance. As part of my design I need to record each VM requirements to ensure that I was building an N+1 solution so I started to research the recommended requirements for a vSphere 5.1 Virtual Appliance but unlike other VA’s this information was not clearly stated in the requirements section.

After some digging I have come up with the following recommendations

For scenarios of less than 100 virtual machines 512MB of ram and a single CPU
For scenarios of more than 100 virtual machines 1GB of ram and a single CPU

The RAM information was pulled out of this article and the CPU information from a forum post. I am implementing a replication solution shortly and will update the above recommendation if required.
