I'd like to deploy elasticsearch (ES) at Webfaction server. I have 256MB of memory and running a Django app that takes about 100MB. I need to index about 10,000 records. Is it possible to run ES in a pool with about 128MB of memory?

You should be able to install it yes. However, doing some digging it seems most people are using one of the following. Not sure if it is because of resources or what.

Solr http://community.webfaction.com/questions/4183/solr-in-webfaction

Xapian http://community.webfaction.com/questions/72/problems-with-installing-xapian

https://bitbucket.org/mchaput/whoosh/wiki/Home is another project that is mentioned.

It will take some trial and error to see if it works the way you want.

Yes, it's as easy as download the zip file and run the process, BUT change your memory options because the default config uses already 256MB and you will receive a support email notifying that the process was killed for excessive memory use.
