Hello - We have successfully tested WOWZA demo version and are in the process of purchasing the full version along with the Transcoder module. I have a couple of questions as we plan on the Production infrastructure and its scalability.
A. Is WOWZA Server with Transcoder module certified for Virtualized environments? While i find that users asking similar questions getting re-directed to the Performance tuning and Physical server platform benchamrking specification weblinks, I was wondering if there are formal benchmarking / certification done for WOWZA with add-on modules on VM enviroments. Since my client is preferring a virtualized enviroment, I wanted to be sure as integrators that we don't end-up having performance issues post roll-out. My client's environment consists of a max of two (2) simultaneous live streams with about 3500+ users.
B. Since 3500+ users are expected to be part of the live webcast running on Multicast using Silverlight player (HTTP), are there any Web Server Sizing considerations that i need to factor? We are planning to run Microsoft IIS 7 on a Dual CPU Quad Core, 8 GB, 3.00 GHZ hardware platform.
Your input on the above would be highly apprecaited.
