[url]https://secure.codero.com/order/v/3443a72b&vopt[1]=396&vopt[8]=263[/url]

I need some help to select hard drive, raid, .... of corse, the minimum price with the best config. Need to be in linux because I have absolutely no experience using windows.
My site have hosted videos, 100-400 online users, spent 10TB by month using apache pseudostreaming.

I need asistence with this options:
RAM:                       8 GB DDR3-1333 ECC SDRAM - included (i need more?)
First Hard Drive:        500 GB SATA HDD (7200 RPM) - included (i need more?)
Second Hard Drive:    none - (I guess it's good to have one ???)
Disk Controller:          No RAID Card (I guess it's good to have ???)
Uplink Port Speed:     100 Mbps Uplink Port Speed (i need more ???)
Control Panel:           i have planed to use WHMcpanel in centOS 6 - this is the best option ???

---------------------------------------------------
Thanks for all coments and sugestions.

Re: Need some help to chose the server config

1. RAM - 8GB should be enough, but make sure they can add RAM if needed.
2. If you've got the money have one SSD hard drive for the system/sessions and a SATA hard drive for the rest.
3. 100-400 online users at the same time?

Re: Need some help to chose the server config

You need a SSD hard drive for the system and for the sessions (this will make sure everything works faster). With 550 users online at the same time i think you will need more RAM.

Thanks for the reply, but im styll search the best server - i have open google and i cant stop  :-)
To get some RAID i have to get 2 identical hard disk ???  right ???
------------------------------------------------------------

Also i have found this other server (more expenseve)

Intel Core i7 3930K (6 x 3,20 GHz) - 64 GB RAM

first       - 256 GB SSD (Samsung 830)
second   - 3000 GB hard disk
the SSD is conected via S-ATA 6 Gigabits

UNLIMITED traffic - 100 Mbit/s port
1+1 additional ip address
Cent OS 6.3 - cPanel/WHM

Re: Need some help to chose the server config

Okay this is only from my understanding doing the same research as you.

1) E3 series are work horses
2) Don't know if all disk have to be identical, but i was at raid 1 and my HHD was getting beat thus using high RAM (i have 16GB and 15GB was getting used). So i went raid 10 from someone recommendation and everything is smooth, i can tell by my bandwidth monitor graph which was zig zag and now it's horizontal and vertical.
3) Unlimited is always a plus because paying of extra GIG will kill your pocket.
4) 100 Mbit/s don't know much about this or when you will need 1000Mbit/s but if your starting up 100 should last until traffic start getting serious, then you might consider 1000.
5) Cpanel is always a plus, is it free?? i know some server host give free cpanels.
6) I think you already know this but make sure the host is first reliable, then look for cheap price. Don't get a cheap sever with a crappy unreliable host, that's a no no.
7) I moved from apache+lighttps to nginx for the script and for streaming... no problem so far and super fast.
