hardware recommendations

Hi,
What server hardware would you recommend for running OC and Pentaho BI ? We
usually have 2 or 3 concurrent users (2 data entry persons and maybe one data
analyst/physician).
We would like to run it on Debian and Postgresql.
We don't need 24/7 uptime. We could live with some hours downtime if things
break. Any recommendation on real life hardware setups ? Sure things like hot
swap and stuff are nice but not critical in our case.
Any help and known to work hardware combinations are appreciated.

    Hello Sebastian,
    >From what you describe you'd have enough with a small server and why not
    use a Virtual Machine. For example, my demo OC-instance runs on a system
    with these specs (taken from Tomcat-manager):
    ---
    Server Information
    Tomcat Version JVM Version JVM Vendor OS Name OS Version OS Architecture
    Apache Tomcat/6.0.20 1.6.0_12-b04 Sun Microsystems
    Inc. Linux 2.6.26-1-xen-686 i386
    JVM
    Free memory: 107.13 MB Total memory: 254.06 MB Max memory: 254.06 MB
    ---
    And I can run one instance of 3.0.4.2 and another of 3.1.1
    I don't know about Pentaho, though. Are you planning to use it for reporting?
    Hope this helps,
    Gerben Rienk
