I think (concerning Hardware) the answer to this question is: We do have a 
German Server openstreetmap.de which currently does almost nothing ( except 
one apache serving 3 html pages ...). So If you still have time; I'm sure 
you're welcome to use this hardware to start/try/do something like the above.
So for this I don't see any real need for a new hardware ...
