Thread: Server Configuration Recommended for Live Event Streaming, 6,000 Simultaneous (500kbp

  1. #1

    Default Server Configuration Recommended for Live Event Streaming, 6,000 Simultaneous (500kbp

    We have upcoming a live streaming event. We will be publishing a single 500kbps Standard Def (SD) RTMP based stream. We need to reliably support 6,000 simultaneous viewers. Several hours long in duration.

    Using Wowza, can a single dedicated server support such an event? Or would it be recommended or necessary to have a multi-server origin/edge repeater configuration?

    If yes, what hardware configuration would be recommended for the dedicated server(s) running Wowza?

    I have seen Richard's (rrlanham) reply 03-07-2011 re: "Dedicated media streaming server hardware" at the following link:

    Can anyone provide a better or updated reference link(s) than the 03-07-2011 and 06-01-2010 reply links above?

    We are first exploring our own dedicated server(s) as we support events of this nature on an ongoing basis.

    Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    Hi
    It seems you found what you were looking for, I'm not aware of a newer detailed description.
    If you have any other questions you may find some answers here,

    If not feel free to ask.

    @azrilnazli -- Thanks. AWS is *not* our first choice due to Amazon's published "Data Transfer Pricing" for "Standard US" starting at $0.120 per GB, which is 3 times the 4/GB we pay with a hosting partner. Bandwidth is a big percent of the cost on these events.

    For failover, we do anticipate keeping an AWS instance up (to switch to just in case of any disruptions on our primary).
