Do you mean that generation of the XML files will be done offline, in 
batch and Cocoon's job will only be to take XML files from the 
filesystem, possibly transform them and serialize the results?

If so, performance and scalability will depend on the kind of 
transformations you are going to do, but given that source files are 
regenerated only from time to time, you could get a high cache hit 
ratio: most of the time, the output document will be retrieved from the 
cache in a matter of microseconds.

You could even use Cocoon to pregenerate the entire site using the CLI 
and serve a static snapshot from Apache or some other web server.

I suppose you mean 1GB RAM.
