Hi Pierre,

I'm currently running an OC instance on a virtualized 1 core / 1 GB 
machine for serving 4 users. It's truly enough.

The server is hosted in Gandi.net infrastructure on their IAAS solution 
for 2 years now. Never had any issue. It also hosts some more services 
(Coppermine, Mumble server, etc.) without any trouble - I guess that as 
far as you've got a few number of users, it will run fine.

I can provide you with further information as you need.
