hi ,
need you opinion about this server
on this server the xfile run as Apache so ..
- 2x Quad-Core Xeon 5405 (24MB Cache)
- 8GB ECC DDR2-667 RAM
- 8x 1,000GB SATA2 Hard Drives
- 10,000GB traffic
- Gigabit uplink (1000Mbps)

or this server
http://www.ovh.co.uk/dedicated_servers/hg_2011_ssd.xml

i got several servers from ovh
this is a beast http://www.ovh.co.uk/dedicated_servers/hg_2011_ssd.xml, but not enough hard drive
but before jumping on such server, is your site live ? how many visitors you got ? is it only download or download and streaming ?

oh then u can start with this server http://www.ovh.co.uk/dedicated_servers/eg_best_of.xml
i dont know what is your budget and how many traffic your expecting, but the best thing to do is to separate the site from the file server



edit : i can take this http://www.ovh.co.uk/dedicated_servers/ ... bestof.xml
and to upgrade the HDD ... no ?


dont waist your money on big server
better to spread files on several servers

your welcome
i use the Hybrid http://www.ovh.co.uk/dedicated_servers/eg_hybrid.xml
as i said apache sux, if u are expecting high traffic dont do my mistake, use nginx

this server is just for the xfile script ?
and if iget this server with the nginx ineed nginx on the webserver or on the file server ?
if i dont have nginx mod in xfile script ?

amm and if i use apache with the website and i use this server
http://www.ovh.co.uk/dedicated_servers/ ... bestof.xml
and for the files server i use http://www.ovh.co.uk/dedicated_servers/eg_best_of.xml

you think it's ok ? if i have 1000 visitors per day ..

and again thanks for helping :)

that's way overkill for 1000 visitors/day
I have 15k/day and run the main website on a xeon 3xxx dualcore with 1 gb ram for 50 euros/month (runs also many other websites on it)
for a fileserver the eg best of is good, but you can't upgrade hdd space on it!
