I am looking into a dedicated server for my station.
what minimum server requirements would be needed to handle 1000 128k streams from a shoutcast server.
would 1000gb/month cover an average of 1000 128k concurrent listeners?
I ask these questions because my station is beginning to grow at a rate that will require me to cap my service I have now or upgrade to some dedicated server package. The server packages I have been looking into range for cpu speeds, ram, etc. I want to be prepared before my station catches on.
Oh yeah, one last question I almost forgot. I didn't personally install the shoutcast server I have now. I inherited the station. Is setting up a shoutcast server on a remote host difficult or require any special knowledge? I was told I would need to use SSH to get the server up and running. Please forgive my ingnorance.
