Very interested in your experiences with Aruba gear, and your specific use cases for a single 620 controller and one or two APs. We have a very busy coffee shop that requires to sustain management of 35-50 minimum wireless devices (with a ceiling of 100) over a 2000 sq. foot area. The current SOHO options have not been scalable. Any tips on sizing, as well as design considerations would be highly appreciated.

If you are looking at purchasing, then consider Aruba Instant...

Unless you have the controller already and is looking at feature rich WiFi else like what the rest mention Instant APs should be sufficient for your senarios, try using IAP105 or IAP115.

Thanks all for the tips!
Looks like the IAPs should do the trick, but still needs a switch/router I assume, since the IAPs don't have DHCP servers built in correct? Or does the magical dynamiclly chosen IAP also do DHCP?
Was looking at the IAP-93, but looks like that is discontinued but still available from some resellers.

Thanks again all! Based on some comments, it looks like the IAP-93 is good for ~30 users, while the IAP-105 is good for around double that. Based on this, it's either three IAP-93 units, or two IAP-105 should do the trick.
Sounds like all I need now is a PoE switch!

The S1500-12P offers 8 ports of PoE and integrates with the Instant APs.
Rogue AP containment—When a rogue AP is detected by an IAP, it sends the MAC Address of the rogue AP to the MAS. The MAS blacklists the MAC address of the rogue AP and turns off the PoE on the port.
PoE prioritization— When an IAP is connected directly into the MAS port, the MAS increases the PoE priority of the port. This is done only if the PoE priority is set by default in the MAS.
GVRP Integration—Configuring GARP VLAN Registration Protocol (GVRP) in ArubaOS MAS enables the switch to dynamically register or de-register VLAN information received from a GVRP applicant such as an IAP. GVRP also enables the switch to propagate the registered VLAN information to the neighboring switches in the network.
