Hardware requirement for maximum connection.
How much maximum connections that Wowza server can do? Notice that 2Mbps for each connection.
Wowza will be used for live streaming.
Please tell me the hardware requirement.
Bandwidth is normally the factoring issue for maximum connections, the minimum spec for Wowza is this:
Minimum recommended production hardware
CPU: Single Quad Core, 3.00 GHz or better
Disk: 2 or more in RAID 0 (striping)
Network: 1Gb Ethernet
Supported operating systems
Windows® (XP, Vista, 7, Server 2003 & 2008)
Linux (all distributions)
Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 or greater or Java Development Kit (JDK) 6 or greater
With this hardware you could support 500 connections having a 2Mbps stream,
realistically you would only get 90% of the 1Gb Ethernet speed so 450 connections would be more accurate.
How many connections do you intend to have?

please tell me about the hardware requirement.
And here is an example for 1000 connections, is it ok ?
CPU: Intel® Xeon® Quad Core Processor E5620, 2.40GHz,
HDD: 2 HDD (RAID 1).
NIC: 4 x 1Gbps (bonding NIC)

That looks like it would be fine.
