Front End Server Information

#1 Postby shareitall » Mar 19, 2012 8:59 pm

Does the Front End Server for a Medium - Large file sharing site need to be in the same data center as the file servers?

Does the Front End server need lots of:



Fast CPUs?

Disk Space?

The front end server does not have to be in the same datacenter, no.

You wont need any more bandwidth than what you would need on a normal server, but ir depends on how much traffic you are getting.

If you are just starting off, then a medium sized vps should be more than enough.

Disk space shouldnt be a problem. Xfs doesnt take up too much space.

Thanks for the reply.

I already have one dedicated server that slows down quiet often due to HEAVY traffic.

I am interested in getting another server that will be used exclusively for the front end of the site.

It is possible to move the front end to another server to offset some of the load from the file server?

Is it possible to host the web/front end server on a cloud hosting? Will it be efficient?
If it's not, will these dedicated server spec enough for the web/front end server?
