Doubts about production environment
I need the advice and help of the most experienced.
1st I have VPS 1x2.4GHz 4GB RAM 20GB SSD, I am bothered with it and I am thinking of switching to these configurations 1x2.4GHz 6GB RAM 25GB SSD or 1x3.1GHz 2GB 25GB SSD.
My question is, what is more important RAM or CPU? Or in that case RAM would be better seen that the CPU difference is not glaring?
2nd An Nginx + apache server for a small store (1000 products) is viable, is it worth the effort? Is it too complicated to make the two work together?
3º For the time being I have 2 stores in the same VPS, I have plans for 4 stores, better get a VPS for each store or choose a better VPS (ex: 2x2.4GHz 12GB RAM 50GB SSD or 2x3.1GHz 4GB RAM 50GB SSD)
4th is it feasible to put the store in normal web sites? I will not have to configure VPS, but is it good to leave the store in a shared environment?

For performance considerations, the number of page views counts a lot more than the number of products. If you’re that keen on more performance, it’d be better to analyse the current state, first. There are plenty of tools, e.g. Firefox’ built-in web developer toolbox, showing each file loaded and how long it takes. If you have shell access to the server, run ‘top’ for a while and watch how much it swaps. No/rare swapping -> RAM is sufficient.

Yes. Apache, PHP, database is sufficient.
