Since your use is light and simple, you can go with VM.
The company I work in, we use Virtual Server Instance (VSI) from IBM Cloud
(previously known as Softlayer). We ran freeswitch for an estimated 10
We had the simple configuration for the VSI:
CPU core 4
*Root Disk: 25GB SAN
**Extended Disk: 1TB SAN
* is for running freeswitch,postgresql and nginx etc
* is for data and recording and etc.
Hope this helpful
