Server 1 should be fine but it depends on what how much logging and how many content defs you're keeping

For server 2, how big is your DB. You need roughly 3x the size of the your DB in disk space to be free.

The main consideration will be how many content definitions you set the SEPM to keep - this can be set up under:
