1 GbE seems too little, 10 GbE costs too much. What's the right number? Anyone have experiences to share?

That totally depends on how much network traffic your customers will be bringing into your website and services.

    Yeah, of course traffic is going to play a big role. I'm wondering if there's a cost/benefit breaking point though. And what other factors are important to consider?

    VM size matters, since you'll be backing it up offsite I presume. Also backup intervals / frequencies add to the total bandwidth needed
