REST Server Specs

Hi all! I am (finally) getting started in earnest writing a tool app using the RESTful APIs. I need to provision a server to host the app(s) on. At this juncture, I'll be using it for testing only and connecting it to low-traffic test and development instances of Learn, but I am interested generally in what kind of resources people have allocated to serve requests to their REST apps in either testing, staging, or production.


I'm thinking I won't need much and will maybe start with 4G of RAM and 1 or 2 cores, running the app from /opt on an Ubuntu server with some help from Apache. Thoughts? Does anyone have a handle on storage needs? Not a java app if it makes a is AngularJS and then perhaps another javascript-based language for some presentation stuff.


Interested in what others are playing around with! Thanks.
