Dedicated server:Hard disk for registered users file storage

#1 Postby ruben » Nov 06, 2010 11:54 pm

My question is :

If i want to give my costumers 10GB storage space on their accounts
and for example i have 500.000 registered users on my website.
and I have 2 dedicated servers does that mean i need 500.000 X 10GB = 5 million GB Hard disk on my dedicated server ? that is way to high.

Please could someone explain me how it works.

Thanks.

you only need the storage amount that you like to use

accounts are not bounded to your storage amount , they are bounded at the max upload they can store on there own account

so if you got 1GB hd or 1TB hd , it stays the same

You do not need 500.000 times 10 gb = 5 000 000 gb storage as your users will never all use that 10 gb
You can just say you give them 10 gb each, if your current harddrive( as a start maybe 1 TB) is full, you just buy another one and install it as a new fileserver for xfilesharing(you can have unlimited fileservers)

That's up to you. Each new HDD - is new file server (in terms of Xfilesharing) and no matter where it will be located, on separate physical server or on separate HDD on your existing server.
