with that size userbase you could easily do it with servers with only 512MB RAM and single core CPU's.
Obviously these are no longer entry level configs and a core duo with 2GB of RAM will more than happily satisfy your users.


can i do clustering using zcs open source edition.

sure - but you need to satisfy WHY you want to run clustering for this userbase. That number of users you are SIGNIFICANTLY increasing complexity (and therefore the potential for something to go wrong) by introducing clustering, and gaining nothing at all from a resilience perspective as you are running it on a single virtual server.
