I'm currently renting one of these from hetzner with ACD:
Intel Core i7-3770
HDD2x HDD 3,0 TB SATA
RAM2x RAM 8192 MB DDR3
it's running Ubuntu 16.04 and Quickbox with a lot of the apps. I've got 10 people using the PMS and I'm worried that performance is soon going to be affected if I add more people. Currently the server peaks at 7 concurrent streams, and the server has only shown strain once, where it couldn't handle it.
This box currently costs 27 EURO p/m to rent. I'm thinking of possibly renting a second box for the next batch of people I add but that means double the maintenance The other option is to get a stronger box that can handle more concurrent streams. The problem with that is that the high end boxes are quite a lot more expensive.
I've seen guys who have hit the 100 person limit on the PMS and they do it from ONE server. How do they even do that?
Has anyone else had this problem? What is the best bang for buck solution?
