View Full Version : [ubuntu] Webserver hardware reccomandation

July 30th, 2009, 11:19 AM
I am looking for hardware specifications for running a webserver with
around 5000 request/second, maybe higher.

It will not run apache, and the site is not very big:100-150 files, html, javascript, picures,
no big files.

I have some servers in production now(some 2 X Quad Intel Xeons) but none of them is dedicated to webserving.

I will build RAID1, no 5 or 6.

Based on your experience and reccomandation what kind of specifications should the
hardware have:

- processor(Xeon dual, quad core? frequency, dual processor ?)
- memory 4-8-16-32 GB, more ?
