Is a 512MB VPS enough to host WHMCS + Kayako?
I will start using whamcs + kayako in order to manage my clients and im looking to install it on a VPS (cPanel) with 512MB RAM.
It will manage +/- 100 clients.
So will whmcs + kayako run well on a 512MB VPS, or do i need to go to a dedicated server?
Any experiences or advices?
It definitely is large enough.

I have currently been playing with a 512MB VPS, that should be fine for the most part.
You should be fine, I'm running Ubersmith & WHMCS(Two different domains) and am fine, totaling over 500 clients on a 512mb VPS.
Yes, a VPS with 512MB RAM should fit your needs fairly well. Managed + 512MB ram + cPanel/WHM will probably run you $35-50 for a reputable host. Also take a look at the VPS offers forum, there are many reputable vps offers there.
512mb should be fine! Just make sure your provider will allow you to upgrade with minimal issues/downtime, if any.

Agreed, I currently run similar numbers on a 512mb machine. But to future proof yourself, make sure the physical machine you are running on has the ability to offer more ram.

ok, thanks all for your advices
i will go and buy the 512mb vps
^ Good luck and lets know how it turns out.
512MB is more than ample for what you are needing...
We've been running our website/client system/kayako on a VPS with 384MB RAM for ages, but then again we don't use cPanel on it

Should be fine!
No need to go dedicated until you outgrow as vps!

Our website/billing portal runs on a 512mb VPS with XtraHost, we have no problems whatsoever, it also has cPanel installed and hangs around 200mb RAM used.
I do not suggest you run the billing server on the same server as the cPanel hosting, as each port you open up raises the risk to be hacked.
512 Mb RAM is good enough to do that, but do take a note of what host machine specifications are, it should have powerful multiple multicore CPU and lot of RAM.
Don't forget you can always upgrade the ram and swap, so you'd be better off going low and upgrading once needed
512mb is fine for Cpanel & Kayako, I've just moved over from a reseller account onto VPS and with all my clients moved over there are plenty of resources still available. I checked with my VPS host that I could upgrade when things get bigger and this isn't a problem. It certainly works out cheaper and you get better control over the data of you r clients..
