Hi, it is not easy to answer which instance will be best suited. AWS provides many EC2 instances types. I would suggest start with minimum i.e. 4CPU & 8GB RAM (xlarge) instance type then monitor the performance for both CPU & RAM for sometimes and increase the instance type if started observing the glitch in either CPU or RAM.

Based on your questions, I assume the compute optimized instances type will be more suitable, but still before finalizing you need to go through multiple permutation & combination.

Refer, AWS EC2 various instances type details:
