Due to resource restrictions, we have been offered to host both jira database(my sql) and the jira installation on the same windows VM.
The only bottleneck I see would be the memory so in case i get a 6GB memory, will it still be a problem?
Please note, we are planning to migrate our production instance on this VM. Our production jira instance currently has over 300 projects, 4000 users and 120,000 issues.
I'm not sure how you'd check CPU allocation on your particular VM.It depends on the software you use to create the VM. Best to ask the person in charge of managing these VMs. E.g. in VMWare you can allocate any number of virtual CPU to a VM depending on the physical server capabilities.
The JIRA documentation recommends having 2GB of ram for a production instance with around 200,000 issues. Read here.
I feel you should be alright running both JIRA and MySQL on the same system. But well I ain't no expert :)
I would monitor resource usage over a few weeks to understand consumption, and make an objective decision. Just based on the sizing you mention I would suggest you find dedicated servers for each, especially is provisioning VMs is relative cheap/easy.
