    Default require a suggestion for live streaming

    I'm planning to rent a dedicated server for a live streaming service.
    i will have around 50 streamers(publishers) and each one will have around 100 watchers.
    each stream bitrate will be maximum 1600kb/s.
    now i'm not really sure which dedi i would require for that amount but i got a proposal, let me know what you think about it:
    Chassis 1U/T3
    CPU Intel Xeon
    2x E5-2650v2
    Cores/threads 16/32t
    Frequency/burst 2,6 GHz+/3,4 GHz+
    Intel Smart Cache 20 MB
    RAM 128 GB DDR3 ECC 1600MHz
    Disks 2x 2 TB SATA3
    Bandwidth 500 Mbps
    Traffic Unlimited
    Burst 1 Gbps unlimited
    Public network card 1x 1 Gbps
    500GB backup (free) FTP access
    what do you think about the server?
    is the cpu enough? is the RAM enough or too much?is the bandwidth enough?
    i dont require alot of DISKS as im not planning to save any streams on my server.

    can you tell me how many watchers/streamers i would be able to to run on this server?

    thanks for your help!

    The server looks to be sufficient in all areas for what you describe, but agree that the RAM is excessive for the purpose.
    16GB or so would be a good / safe RAM size to go with (even that might be high, but still a good option).

    Whatever hardware you go with, do ensure you load test with a load test tool such as the one provided here.
