    Default Some questions

    Hi

    Thanks for a nice support forum.

    I got a couple of questions.

    - Does Wowza have any loadbalancer /Cacheserver ?
    - If we want to use Wowza to stream live channels, how many channels can each server handle ? How many clients can each server handle ? If we say that the bitrate is 1 mbit.

    Hi there and welcome to the Wowza support forum.

    Wowza provides a Loadbalancer AddOn and MediaCache:
    How to get Dynamic Load Balancing AddOn
    How to scale video on demand streaming with Media Cache

    For server specs, we recommend late model dual quad CPU, 4 - 8 gigs of RAM, and at least 1gbs nic.
    With 20% overhead accounted for. A 1g nic = 800mbs throughput, which is 800 1 mbs streams, or 1600 500kbs streams.

    I hope this helps answer some of your questions.

    Hi Salvadore

    Where can I found the prices for the loadbalancer and the cache servers ? On wowza website I find only the price for the streaming server.
