I am investigating a transcoding solution and would like some educated input please.
I am looking at buying a server with the following specifications:
Chassis and board (dual 10gbit nics)
2x Xeon E5 2660 v4 (14Core processors) Link to specs here
192GB ram or 256GB DDR4 2400 RAM
2x PNY Quadro P4000 Nvidia cards
Datacentre supports 10gbit uplinks
Now based on existing Wowza Trans-rating benchmarks I am under the impression that I might well be able to ingest up to 100 1080p streams and trans-rate these into 4 different bitrates each.
However, I need confirmation from the community (and Wowza specialists alike please) if this is indeed the case? Normally I would go with a Wowza Cloud solution but geographically speaking it doesnt make sense, hence the need to investigate self provisioning.
