For instance, I have another SQL server it suggests 1GB of RAM on. 1GB of RAM is less than the minimums for the OS (512MB) and SQL (1GB) combined. Do we ignore the app minimums in this case or use those as our minimums and not go below those regardless of what Veeam One suggests?

I just curious if you shrinked the SQL VM and how it works now.

Why is it a bad idea? Did you gather stats from VMware or Veeam One on these servers to show that it was performing slowly with the 1 core?
