I have set it up in a jail on a standard server with 64GB RAM and (I 
believe) 4 CPUs and it works without a sweat at least in the lower range 
of what you mention (there simply have not yet been conferences with up 
to 100 users at the same time yet but up to around 30 users with video 
have been no problem so far). To me it seems like the main bottleneck is 
network bandwidth.

You can have a look at https://jitsi.honeyguide.net and I have written a 
short howto at https://honeyguide.eu/posts/jitsi-freebsd/ - set up is 
not complicated thanks to the ports.

There also is a nice Grafana dashboard available which is easy enough to 
set up as well (https://honeyguide.eu/posts/jitsi-grafana/).

Best regards

Stephan
