Tips for Building Server Running Piwigo with 500,000+ Photos?

Greetings!

I am running the latest Piwigo on a test Centos Linux server just fine right now!

I will be building a second Centos Linux server soon to host over 500,000 photos in over 1,000 albums.  I am hoping to get some feedback/tips for optimizing the server, and I will share my progress!

The server will have two 6TB drives in a RAID-1 configuration.  The entire server will be devoted to the one Piwigo install, and I will be the only one adding photos, about once or twice a day or so. 

1. What processor(s) and RAM would you recommend?
2. Would it be good to get an SSD drive for the database and/or code?  How large of an SSD Drive?
3. What are the fastest/best-optimized Piwigo themes?
4. I will be the only one adding photos.  Are there rules to follow so as to optimize performance?
5. Is it worth getting a RAID hardware controller?  What is the fastest RAID configuration?
6. What other tips might you give someone building a server from scratch?

Thank you! :)

It all depends on the traffic volume. Number of pictures means nothing.

Suppose the server is serving 1,000,000 photos a day with 400 concurrent users at any one time.
