Question SMRT Tools, Parsnp, CLG GWB - NGS Tools System requirements

I am pretty new to the NGS field and I am configuring a workstation at the moment.

I'd like to use parsnp and CLC Genomics Workbench. The workstation is a backup for a HPC Cluster and will be used for small bacterial genomes, will this be feasible with the following system:
64 Gb Ram
16 Tb disk

I know this is a rather unspecific question and the exact requirements will depend on the size of the genome etc. I am just trying to get a feeling what workstations people use besides using a server- even if the range is very broad :-)

Coming from the structural biology field, I am used to Ubuntu, it's the Linux distribution most programs install nicely and easy. Is it the same for NGS software or do you suggest a different distribution?

Thanks a lot for any advice!
