Ionic Studio on VM Windows/Mac instance ? prerequisites?

This may be in the wrong category as there does not appear to be a correct category.
I use linux, but Studio apparently only runs on Mac and Windows. I cannot find any details of prerequisites or suggested minimum ram, processor speed, disk space etc for Studio.
Can anyone share any knowledge on these please?
And Im considering therefore to run on a VM. I dont want to use Virtualbox locally, so maybe an EC2 or Azure or Mac in Cloud type VPS ? Am I likely to find this approach feasible ?
