Specs for Creating Social Media Site

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

Good afternoon,

As part of a capstone to my college degree, I am working on an entrepreneurial project creating a business idea with the possibility of actually implementing it down the road. Right now I am trying to give estimates as to building the website and estimating the ongoing costs.

Idea is to have interactive site (similar infrastructure as LinkedIn or Match.com) where users can make profiles and meet each other.

– I am looking at storage options through Amazon EC2 and S3: would you suggests a particular OS? Windows with SQL? (what do I need to understand in making this choice)

– What sort of size would I need as the company grows (ex: cost or size for 100 ppl vs 1,000 or 100,000 people)?

Thank you so much!!!!
– J
