    Default Wowza Streaming Server Hardware Specifications

    Hello Experts,

    One of the my customers is asking for recommendations on Hardware Specifications.

    Here is what I have recommended.

    http://www.wowza.com/products/stream...specifications

    Minimum recommended production hardware
    CPU: Single Quad Core, 3.00 GHz or better
    RAM: 4GB
    Disk: 2 or more in RAID 0 (striping)
    Network: 1Gbps Ethernet

    High-load recommended production hardware
    CPU: Dual Quad-Core or a single Hex-Core, 3.00 GHz or better
    RAM: 16-32GB
    Disk: 2 or more in RAID 0 (striping)
    Network: 10Gbps Ethernet

    However, the customer would like to know if the following suits the requirements.

    Processor Number--> E5-2660V2
    # of Cores --> 10
    # of Threads --> 20
    Clock Speed --> 2.2 GHz
    Max Turbo Frequency --> 3 GHz

    The following is the justification.

    High-load recommended production hardware:

    CPU: Dual Quad-Core or a single Hex-Core, 3.00 GHz or better ( 20 cores in lieu of 4 or 6 cores requested & has 25 MB Cache)
    RAM: 16-32GB (128 Gb RAM)
    Disk: 2 or more in RAID 0 (striping) ( Raid controller has the option for RAID 0, 1, 5, 6 )
    Network: 10Gbps Ethernet

    Now, my question is if the Clock Speed is at 2.2 Ghz, will there be any constrains from the streaming perspective?

    Regards

    Newton,

    It sounds like a robust server. You can use the load test tool to test it. The limiting factor is usually bandwidth.

    I think you should contact some expert IT Hardware Support professional as your requirements for the server are very high. They have a very good knowledge and experience in the field of server hardware support. They will provide you a good solution.
