Hi all, I am currently in need of a web server that would be passing multiple media streams and photographs to multiple clients /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" /> . The streams are relatively short <1min and they can only view 1 pic at a time. It will be connected to a T1. I do not have a deep pocket so I'm thinking entry level with the ability to upgrade. What do you think the min spec's would be -- Opteron.
T1 is 1.544 Mbps both ways. That is about 197 KBps. How many users are you having? What OS? IIS over 10 users requires Windows Server. You could use Linux. It depends on how many users are access for the level of hardware. How large are the files?
What is your budget? What is your storage needs? Do you have a backup plan?
