Yes, the only things to be aware of are RAM requirements if your box is
slimline in that direction.
Squid default binary footprint is 6MB, but can be tuned down below 4MB
by disabling a lot of the bells and whistles. Memory cache defaults to
256MB nowdays, but can be configured as low as zero bytes. Squid
requires a few extra MB to run transactions (averages around ~32KB per
concurrent client), so the overall slimline footprint requirements is
somewhere in the order of 16MB.
