I got a client who wants to open file sharing website. I would like to know what servers should I go with. As a startup I suggested him to take a vps and host his script ans take 1 dedicated server as of now and host the files in it. Slowly I have suggested him to add more server s.
my question here is since its startup what servers do u recomend and frkm which companies.
Main tarffic is from usa and asia.
First make sure your customer complies with law, that's most important.
Secondly, if it's a startup, it can be a simple server with 1 or 2 disks for the storage.
If he has enough budget available he can go for a RAID6 setup with SSD caching, but for that he needs enough budget.

You also have to read the ToS carefully because some providers don't allow even legal file sharing on VPS or dedicated servers. I would recommend you to check WeLoveServers. I have had good experiences with them.
The first question I ask is what is the budget...? This will tell you right away how serious they are and how much or little infrastructure they can afford.
