Please advise conccurrent streaming limit of the following 2 different configurations
server # 1. 2 x E5645 CPU and 16g ram
server # 2. 1x E3-1245 CPU and 8g ram
Assuming there is no network limitation at all (plenty of bonded NIC, and upstream connectivity)
Both running 64bit OS, 64bit Java, same HD (but prob won't matter since it's not VOD application)
For live streaming application
I would think server #1 can support higher concurrent stream but at almost 3 times the cost. Therefore, would it be more pratical to run 3 x server #2 and thus gain higher concurrent streaming than a single server #1?
