That would crash the server for sure.
Actually should be no issue handling hundreds if not a thousand people surfing around with the guaranteed resources on hand. The server was just upgraded. I now have more than a 1000MB of guaranteed ram available and even if I can't handle it they have a new setup. In the past if the server couldn't handle it, that's it you were toast. In the event you have some kind of massive spike in traffic from what they are telling me it should work without any hitches.

What is all this cloud hogwash?
I don't know where the term cloud came from, its nothing new. Its esentially a large server farm where instead of one server, even though ours have raid10 with large arrays, its still one physical server with other areas that can and do fail. The drives are essentially useless in a cloud. hundreds of servers with single drives, lots of ram, powerful cpu's are called hypervisors and hook into shared storage such as multiple powerful SAN's . This is really where the magic of this service happens and is everyones secret recipe. Well now with all these systems playing together as a giant pool of resources, XX Petabytes shared disk, XX Petabytes of RAM, cpu cycles , etc etc. They work to act as one unit where your vps and servers are created. If one hypervisor fails nobody cares, the others pickup the act of serving your data/site.
In other words I have an infinite amount resources at my disposal if they are needed, this would be crucial if for example I somehow manged to get mentioned in a NYT article. It's happened many times in the past where a site gets overwhelmed with traffic in that scenario.
