I'm designing architecture for public cloud (vps/docker) and now i have a problem with network. I have two nodes for computing and one node for controller, api, etc. In this step i need to choose network device. 10Gb switches have huge price, opposite 1Gb switches. What about minimal bandwidth of NIC's and switches for this application?

It all comes down to your use-cases and needs. 1G would do, also 10G or even more would do. But there are no real minimal requirements.
