Apache/Nginx will definitely need tuning.  You'd probably do best to run
RT as an external process, either FastCGI or a pure-Perl backend
(Starman/Starlet) which the frontend proxies.

You'll need to tune all of the above down to a reasonable process limit
so that it all fits without swapping.  Should be possible, but you'll be
restricted in how many clients you can serve at once.  Keep in mind that
each incoming email is also an HTTP client.
