    * Servers for shooutcast

    Hello all
    I must setup shoutcast servers for two radio stations.
    Every server must support up to 3000 listeners in the same time.
    We can setup stream balancer,and can you use more than 1 server for each.
    How to do that?
    To order one dedicated and one VPS for each or only dedicated ?
    Also,servers must work 24 hours a day.
    I need something for backup,they want 100 % uptime.

    Also,do you know good company in EU?Like server4you ?

    Thank you all

    What sort of budget would you have in mind for say 2 dedicated servers? Have you checked the offers section?

    A VPS is a shared environment so not really suitable if you want 100% uptime on hardware (same thing for dedicated).
    Hardware can fail, but finding a good network should not be that hard.

    What budget are you looking at for your 3000 listeners?

    A VPS would not suit network wise, you're talking more than a 100meg dedicated connection for that amount of listeners with stability

    Bitrate at 64 kbps
    Monthly budget is about 200-300 EUR

    Interesting - the best solution would be to merge 2-3 dedis in a private cloud, this should in theory provide enough BW and reliability. Otherwise you'll need a unlimited 1Gbps port dedi to make room for your possible peak of 540 TB.

    I can't believe now there is someone asking for shoutcast, a service that no one want to use. It's better to think about whmcs security or their business will be down completely rather than posting to ask such this question.

    You not need 2 dedicated servers for that number of listerners.With your bugdet you can buy good quad core server with 16-32gb RAM memory with 1 Gbp/s connection

    Only problem is that how much bandwith will spent that 3000 listeners...If he not have 3000 listener constantly than you will not have a problem with budget.If he constantly have 3000 listeners than you will must to get bigger budget for full duplex link 1 Gbp/s

    Do you need some control panel?
    From which location come most of listeners?
