I need to setup a server for a single live stream that we want to transcode/transrate.
I am looking at a server with the following specs:
Quad Core Xeon 5430 2.66 Ghz / 8GB RAM / 2x500GB HDD / 100TB BW / 1 GiGE Port
Does it need a RAID solution for transcoded live streaming? Or, will the above specs suffice?
At this point, we are looking at 100 - 1000 external connections.
What should the max bitrate be to allow 1000 connections at a time?
