Suggestions for unmetered/dedicated BW? 10Gbps or more with storage type servers
We operate a business (video on demand site) that consume lot of bandwidth through storage type servers. Our typical server setup would be
E3-1230 or Dual E5 2620 CPU
72GB or more RAM
4x3TB or more storage
2x1Gbps or 10Gbps (shared unmetered) uplinks
I feel most of these providers are overselling their bandwidth because we are hardly able to push 1.5Gbps from a 10Gbps line.
I would like to get member's suggestions on where I should be looking to get better bandwidth. I do not want to pay super expensive dedicated prices either because we are AD supported.
One option I have in mind is to rent a 10Gbps dedicated line + 5 servers. Another option is to co-locate but I have 0 experience doing that. I even talked to a local Cogent agent for a 10Gbps and he quoted 0.65/Meg which is same as reseller pricing.
Any advice or suggestions regarding this is much appreciated.
Have you spoken to your current provider as to why you can only push 1.5Gbps from a 10Gbps port?
What is your budget per server? Also, do you have a preferred location?

If you need 72 GB RAM, you either have to go for 3x an E3-server or just go with the E5 (as the E3-series supports maximum 32 GB RAM).
In case you need quality bandwidth, expect on paying more than 65 cents / Mbit.
