Which Barebone Hardware (CPU) for Jitsi?

I would like to buy a small barebone mini server for Jitsi.

Which recomendation can you give me?

There will be at max 10 sessions, which each having 5 participants at one time.

Where do you think will be the bottleneck? (CPU, Network, RAM, …)

What makes more sense: less cores, but faster CPU, or more cores but not that fast CPU?

You need 8 GB of ram as minimum to run everything there. 4 or more cores is what you need, one for prosody (single threaded) and few for jicofo and jvb, I think jvb preforms better when it has 4 or more to spread on …
And normally the bottleneck is the good quality bandwidth as usage grows.
