Why is high memory shape required for WebCenter Portal Cloud?
When one opts for the high memory shape (1 OC1M i.e. 1 OCPU with 15 GB of memory) for dev/test purposes, it is possible to use the same OCPU for deploying WebCenter Portal, WebCenter Content, IBR, portlets and SES. However, this may not be the only topology you may want to install. For example, you may want to deploy WebCenter Content on a different OCPU. In such a case, while installing, you can specify what will be installed on 1 OCPU and opt for more OCPUs. One can then install WebCenter Content or other managed servers on other OCPUs. All of them can them seamlessly participate in a cluster.
