Since this is for a large group of people, I would advise against 
setting up your own VM instance. For instance, on a Digital Ocean 
droplet with 2Gb of RAM, I managed to get about 12 people on Jitsi and 
it seems to run out of steam. For anything more than that, a non-shared 
platform (own hardware) is probably advisable. Do you have a reason for 
not using the Jitsi (*) hosted service? The Surrey Linux User Group have 
been using this with great success for all their monthly meetings.
