As usual this depends.... :)

If you have 100 users, but they only use the sync client and don't have 
large/huge directory trees,
you will need something different from a setup where you have 100 users 
alls working with huge
files and many many folders/files, and eventually also using the 
photogallery or other apps.

A good disk subsystem might be required, but this realy depends on your 
specific use case
