There is no issue in running Zope in Windows _or_ running Zope inside a VM.
It does need the same amount of RAM as running it not inside a VM. Whether
that counts as "RAM intensive" or not depends on what you do with it and
whether you have a comparison to another application.

VMs tend to have a bit lower performance per MHz, so if you can live with that
(and have the RAM to feed the VM) go ahead. You can later decide to put it
on a dedicated machine anyway.
