We try to keep Persona lean so that it is a good base to theme off of. We try to strike a balance between aesthetics and themeability.

Trying to get a handle on memory and CPU usage (Drew a blank on google searches)
Would love to hear your mem/CPU usage vs. forum activity (users/posts/activity etc) for those using the default redis backend (my personal preference).
Care to share?
This might help you:
Thanks @psychobunny - that's very helpful. Might want to consider linking to that in the Requirements as it's very useful

Thanks @baris - good to have a real world stats. Confirms that memory wise at least a fairly low end vps would suffice.
Yes a 512mb VPS should be more than enough to get started.
Note that RAM used by Redis is one thing, that consumed by Node.js is another, and tends to be more than that used by Redis.
For example, on a test system with just 1 user and about 30 posts, Node.js is using about 110 MB of RAM, several times more than being used by Redis.
@planner indeed. I take it that's Virtual, what's the RSS?
If you meant RES, that is the RES. The VIRT is almost 10x the RES.
