    Default Server Spec

    I am very new to streaming and need assistance to spec the best machine to use with Wowza.

    We are streaming to smart devices via a closed wifi network (not over internet) and therefore we need our own server that we can transport from event to event. Can anyone recommend minimum spec machine. We were looking at Dell PowerEdge R210 II Ultra-compact Rack Server...anyone?

    Many thanks....

    Generally, a late model dual quad cpu, 4 - 8g ram, 64bit OS and Java JDK, and 1 - 4gbs nic, is recommended.

    Bandwidth is usually the limiting factor.

    Thanks Richard,

    We are wanting to stream to 200 mobile devices via a closed wireless network (up to 3 Access Points with an AP controller to load share between all 3) at minimum 128kbs. Would that change the spec at all?

    No, you can handle that at the lower end of that spec: 1gbs nic, 4g ram.
