Hardware and storrage solution ?

#1 Postby darkm4n » Jan 25, 2010 9:51 pm

Hi ,

Useing your Xfilesharing pro i'am opening a site that will handle about 5000 visitors per day , about the storrage ... i don't know ... i will aim at about 40Tb in Raid 1 ( so 20 Tb left ) .

I'am searching for a good hardware solution to host this . Is this script capable of that much traffic ? Bandwitdth is not a problem , i have multiple gigabit direct link's as well as /21 ip's and AS number .

What i thinked of :

Buy one dual quad core , 16 gb ram Dell Poweredge 2950 server with SAS 15K drives ( raid 1 ) for the main OS and database .

Buy multiple Dual core computers , each one with multiple PCI raid controller for storage .

Dedicated storage solution is not considered due to high price .

Any suggestions ? I'am new to this hosting thing .. i'am specialized in networking / ip routeing .

Thanks !

Do you mean 50,000 users a day? Because an entry level quad core machine with 8GB ram or less spec can handle 5,000 users..very easy.

how about your budget?, my server using 2 1.2 Tb Hardisk 7200 Rpm with raid 1
better perfomance (Read and write) using 15k HDD for large traffic

I currently using a fileserver with this spec:

X8SIL-F mainboard
Quadcore Xeon X3430 2.4GHz
12GBRAM
16x1TB SATAII WD Caviar Raid Edn
ARC-1680ix-12 16 port raid controller
32GB SSD Os Disk

Raidsetup is Raid10 so about 7Tb space

This setup should handle 1-4 Gbit links
----
And i am planning to get a
quad core
8-12Gb ram
4xSAS 15k HD in HW Raid 10

as web and database server

should be enough for a while :)
