These are the minimum requirements to setup an OnApp powered cloud. Some of our clients (like VPS.NET) starts out with beefier hypervisors/hardware, but this is really all you need.
1 x Base (Control Panel) Server: 4GB+ Ram, Dual or Quad Core 2Ghz+, 100GB Raid 1, 2x Gig NIC - running CentOS
2 x Hypervisors: 8GB+ Ram, Quad Core 2Ghz+, 30GB HD (SSD Recommended) 3x Gig NIC - running CentOS
1 x Data Store: 1TB Block Storage (iSCSI, AoE, Fiber - can even be on a shared SAN)
1 x Backup Store: 2TB+ NAS (alternatively, a large HD can be used on the CP server for backups)
If you buy those servers for colo I am guessing you'd be looking at a pricepoint well below 10k, but you should be able to get live for less than 1k/month if you lease the servers at one of the many providers on WHT.
