Let me start by apologizing if I am posting in the wrong section, I looked around and didnt see any stickys explaining the diffrences. I will state hardware, software intentions, and my questions at the end. Here is a general list of hardware I will be using:
2 quadcore xeon 3.2ghz processors
6 300gb SAS 15,000rpm
32-64gb (not sure have to check the rack) DDR2 1066?
This is general due to I have yet to look at the rack.
Want to run This software:
1-4 CS:GO servers at least 2 public 20 mans and 1-2 privates for matches
1-2 BF3 Servers 64man
1-5 Ventrilos (probably 25-50 mans)
Possibly a Day-z Server, runs on ARMA 2
I have a friend who owns a small computer company and we were looking into hosting some servers at his new location hhe just purchased. He has servers that he gets from big companies in town so they a little older but not still good.
I looked into a business account for internet through comcast and it seems that the Delux pkg would be enough bandwidth(50/10) unlimited data transfer. Everything I read says 6-10kbs per person per server.
My question is please let me know if this will work theoretically, Too much bandwidth, not enough, server under powered,server OP, need additional racks?
PS have been told to use linux by my networking guru buddy, for the server but i have read that windows works better with the newer games.
I am new to hosting, this will be for friends and LAN events at this store for promotional tournaments.
