We are going to launch Video Tours service for real-estate companies.
The video files will be stored on the server and shown by request.
What kind of server should we use for this task?
Are there any specific requirements to the server and the network?
I would go for a server with at least a quad core cpu, maybe a dual cpu config if your budget allows it and enough memory and storage space
Networks location depends on where most people who will view the videos come from.

I agree with domainwala, all other posts are pretty much useless until you can figure out the size of your videos, resolution and streaming size (in kbps) and most importanly - THE NUMBER OF CONCURRENT USERS.
