There isn't an easy answer to your question.. You will have to gather information relating to the areas indicated below -

A) Normal and Peak level of concurrent users
B) Initial Data volume (MB/GB) and expected annual growth
C) Normal and Peak transactions per minute
D) Availability in terms of database backend being online and available to users
E) Disaster Recovery

Here's a few links that may be of help once you have the initial stats to work with -
