let's collect some data:

I reserved corr - which has 8 cores, 8GB of ram and 500GB of HDD and should be fine
for our use case.

If you buy 2x4 cores, 32G with a 400GB SDD at thomas-krenn at 1HE, you pay
2326€ nett and I bet SUSE gets some discount extra.

No, more ram is important for caching - and ram doesn't add much to the price tag
