More Specific Hardware Requirements


I’m trying to list out a set of requirements for launching a Piwik server (~100,000 pageviews a day at the moment, but eventally scaling up). In researching I’m finding a lot of general suggestions, but nothing more concrete (I see a lot of mention of dedicated, or shared hosting, but no real server specifics). Anyway, we’re looking to launch soon on AWS so I’m wondering about the following:
[li] What sort of processing power do we need for the server, and what should be the memory requirements for the type of traffic we’re expecting?
[/li][li] Should we have a single server and install MySQL on the same server as Piwik, or should we have a seperate database server?

Any help would be appreciated.
