Requirements for multichain and web explorer in production

+1 vote
Hello. I have thought that I could launch multichain and explorer on separate servers. But as far I see it is not supported by default. So I have a question - what should be requirements to my server that will run both multichain and web explorer on python? I am going to use AC2 t2.micro instance (1 vCPU, 1 GB RAM & 30 GB HDD) with Ubuntu 14.04 installed. So what load could it handle without any problem and how do I understand that it is a time to upgrade my instance? I am going to use it just for streaming of data for now without assets and etc.

That should be fine for a starting configuration, and I would estimate that it should handle at least 100 tx/sec on both the multichaind and web explorer side. Please note however that we have not yet conducted long-term high throughput tests on the explorer, in the same way as we have for MultiChain itself.
