Cloudstack can grow from 1 to many servers.
Re hypervisor, if you want to run databases then IO will be your main 
concern. At some point the hypervisor will not matter, your disks will 
matter. I'd look at investing in SSDs.
You can also look at conainer technology such as openvz and LXC which 
usually have better IO (since they access the hardware directly).
