    Default HDD Disk Speed (IOPS)


    We are currently working to design and deploy a Wowza Solution that will having around 400 - 500 users. We have been given the option to use SAS Drives instead of SATA drives (of course a big difference in price)

    My question is would SATA suffice for these amount of users or would you highly recommend we use SAS if available?

    If all you're doing is live streaming, the disk speed isn't very important. If you're doing VOD, you'll need plenty of RAM as well as SAS drives or even SSDs depending on your video usage pattern.
