| ||Ask HN: Help me estimate costs for my web app|

I am currently working on a Ruby on Rails application that will be used on campus, so there is a upper bound on the number of requests it will handle. We are about 1600 students, so in the best of the worlds I will be handling 1000+ requests per second. I am in the process of drafting a funding proposal and I need help locating a good host provider and estimating costs for hosting for this app.
I am thinking of taking the app to a national level, so ideally the host provider should scale nicely.
PS: I live in a small country, so even nationally is not that big, giving that I am targeting a subset of the population (students).
