    How to build 10 gbps dedicated server?

    Hi, sience I realized that renting reliable 10 gbps dedicated server can be really expensive I thought - Why not build it on my own.
    Is It even possible? Can that kind of speed be provided to private person?
    How excatly does It look like? I buy server and then I have to find some internet provider?
    Sorry for asking silly questions but I'd love to find out how It works.

    btw. I found few companies offering 10gbps dedicated servers for around $1000/mo - Can I really expect 10 gbps port there?

    It would cost you a lot more to colocate a server with a dedicated 10gbps pipe than getting it through an established provider.

    $1k/mo for 10gbps is still dirt cheap, but it's possible for a shared connection, where you can maybe use around 30% of the port during the billing period. It's still a great deal.

    Yes, you can expect a "10Gbps port", but probably not able to push 10Gbps fully all the time on that port. I'm sure it is more than enough bandwidth able to be pushed on that 10Gbps port though, far more than $1000 pays for...

    Constant.com also offers a 10G unmetered server for about $900.

    Well, you'd run cheaper if you'd get a 10Gbps port with a rented server because you're sharing their bandwidth pipe.

    A good friend of mine chose renting 10Gbps servers because it's cheaper than using his own datacenter pipe. He could push about 6Gbps 95th perc.

    It's up to you really. But coming from a company that pays for their own pipes, I can tell you that it's not going to be cheap.

    BurstNet offers 10Gbps servers ranging from $400-700. It's a shared bandwidth pool though, which is likely more than you need anyway.

    Is there a minimum speed that they set for each server if the pipe is pooling?

    Leaseweb has some cheap 10 gbit offers. But there is a bandwidth limit. And in my experience, if you want to get close to 10 gbit (or higher than 1 gbit for that matter) you need a RAID10 setup, preferably with SSD disk and a fair amount of RAM. Otherwise IO will be maxed out before you can even reach 1 or 2 Gbit

    so basically If I want 10 gbps I need to rent server like swiftway, It's about $1k per 1 gbps - That's probably reliable, not $1k per 10 gbps, but still nodoby answer - How to build it on my own. Is it some top secret knowledge?

    The main problem is that I want whole 10 gbps pipe for me, so anything with shared uplink won't work here.

    Then be prepared to spend 4k+ minimum.

    That's still dirt cheap, quality bandwidth costs way more than $0.40/mb

    A 10Gbps pipe is very costly depending on the blend.
    You can get cheap HE or Cogent for ~$4000/m though.

    Your best bet would be to rent a dedicated server on a pulled connection or spend the additional money and get a dedicated 10Gbps pipe from your selected hosting provider.

    If you want dirt cheap bandwidth then I agree with cogent or he. However, here is something that you need to remember. Hosting companies can provide these type of pipes cheaper as it is usually shared with larger commits to the various providers and their is a reason that cogent and he are so cheap.

    If you were looking at getting your own full pipe then you are talking a decent amount of money with 1yr to 3yr commits on the pipe and higher cost per Mbps if it's a premium tier provider.

    It's not usually worth it and that is still single provider if you want redundancy now your commiting to multiple pipes and need additional networking gear to do this.

    All in all, rent vs own in your case would be better.

    I dont want dirt cheap bandwidth. I want reliable bandwidth for live streaming so I am definitelly not going to safe money on server. It has to be sharp so I know It won't be cheap.

    SkoczekS1,

    That is good to know. Latency is king with VOD/Live streaming. Would you mind going into a bit more specifics of your application. It makes a huge difference on the best method for your implementation. I've worked with a number of VOD and Live Streaming companies and so far none of them have ever had the exact same needs. The biggest thing to truly understand is your specific use case.

    As an example, I'm working with a live streaming company that really only streams for 6 hours a day and the rest of the time is miniscule. That type of company is better served on a transfer method. However, if you are doing livestreaming and serving continuously then it doesn't make as much sense on a transfer method in which case you look more for a per mbps method.

    But even that depends on what your max simultaneous user requirements are and more specifically the stream sizes.
