Source: System requirements: BlackBerry Enterprise Server

Hardware requirements: BlackBerry Enterprise Server

The following are requirements for a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server and the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components that you install on a single computer, and excludes the BlackBerry Collaboration Service and the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service. The requirements are for a BlackBerry Enterprise Server environment that includes users that receive 100 to 200 email messages each day.

You can improve the performance and reliability of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server by installing the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components on multiple computers. If your BlackBerry Enterprise Server environment supports up to 1000 users, install the BlackBerry Configuration Database on a computer that is separate from the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. If your BlackBerry Enterprise Server environment supports up to 2000 users, install the BlackBerry Configuration Database and the BlackBerry Administration Service on computers that are separate from the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.


Requirement

BlackBerry Enterprise Server that supports up to 200 users
Two processors, 2.0 GHz Intel® Xeon® 3 GB of memory
- 2 drives, RAID 1

BlackBerry Enterprise Server that supports up to 500 users
Two processors, 2.8 GHz Intel Xeon 3 GB of memory
- 2 drives, RAID 1 or 4 drives, RAID 1+0

BlackBerry Enterprise Server that supports up to 1000 users
One processors, 3.0 GHz Intel Xeon 5100 Series (Dual Core) or two processors, 1.6 GHz Intel Xeon 5100 Series (Dual Core) 4 GB of memory
- 4 drives, RAID 1+0

BlackBerry Enterprise Server that supports up to 2000 users
64-bit operating system recommended Single processor, 2.83 GHz Intel Xeon 5400 Series (Quad Core) or two processors, 3.0 GHz Intel Xeon 5100 Series (Dual Core) 4 GB of memory

It doesn't mention whether or not BAS or the DB was one of the installed components for the hardware requirements. With that said, 2GB of memory should be more than sufficient if the only function it is performing is the BES core components for up to 500 users. BAS is the huge overhead for BES 5.0 and as they add more functionality to it, I would imagine that a 64-bit server with a ton of RAM would be key in stability.
