A lot will depend on how large your needs are.  Can you give us a few metrics like how many bibs, patrons and circulations you expect to load / have it handle?

We are installing it on our own server (which is offsite) through a Linux firewall that our county IT department built. The size of our "pipe" into the server is 2 megabytes. The county IT department says this is sufficient, but the company we've contracted with to help us through the migration says they are experiencing slow downs and dropped transactions which indicate we need more. There are also differences between what the two groups are saying is required for memory on the server in order to allow Evergreen the space it needs to "swap" information.
