Hey Akhil, awesome article you have!

How much server resources do you estimate forem would need for a couple hundred users? I'm planning on deploying my own Forem to DO. 😄

Today, most of the services provided by many cloud hosting companies are scalable, keeping this fact in mind it is always better to start with the minimum requirements for any project; at least this is my opinion.

So, I would suggest you start with 4GB Ram, 2Core CPU droplet, for initial production, it can easily maintain 100 users. If you feel like cost doesn't matter, you can prefer 8GB ram and 4Core CPU, anything above this will be an overkill. After all after a particular stage in open sources projects like Forem, the main issue will be in regarding storing data and backing them up safely.

Hope you got some useful info and let me know if you have your Forem instance :)
