Acceptable hardware for a dedicated server

I'm new to friendica (but not to Linux & web hosting) and am thinking of
setting up a friendica server - either from home or in a datacentre.
While browsing the friendica docs, I couldn't see much reference to
recommended hardware - e.g. minimum memory, CPU.
So, a few questions (with the caveat of "yes, I am probably
over-simplifying things!") :
- What would you deem as a decent entry-level spec for serving maybe
- What's the first resource you typically see heavily utilised or even
at risk of exhaustion on a busy server? (CPU / disk space / memory /
network bandwidth, etc)
- Is there an average storage requirement per user, per year? Is there
a magic formula for calculating this?
Many thanks in anticipation,

Friendica does not target communities of that size, it's a much more
scattered decentralized network, more like a RasPi2 for a family or so.
I'm not running any of the big nodes of the network (which are all a
magnitude smaller then what you ask for), so I cant really say
something about the specs. But you can run a small community (50 ppl)
on a shared-hosting service.
