## 15000 GB

Hosting Companies,

How much is 15000GB roughly in 95th percentile Mbps when the server has normal traffic patterns?

Just looking for some estimates.

welll thats like 15tb?

a 10mbps max at 24/7 is 3.4 TB per month... sooo that would be around 45mbps~ish?

(15 000 GB) / (1 month) = 46.7269848 Mbps

15,000GB equals to 15TB. Would be about 45 Mbps.

Nice they can do basic math... too bad they can't actually read the question .

Budget for 90Mbps or more.

My servers will not be running constant MAX SPEEDS. They will have normal traffic patterns with peaks and low points.

Lightwave - is that your experience? About 90 Mbps with normal patterns?

Anyone else have experiences - not calculations?

It's hard to accurately guess. But, I'd say a good industry guess is converting GB/month into Mbps/s and multiplying by 2 to 3.

You can assume your traffic pattern will mostly resemble a sine wave. If you know the GB->(Max)Mbps value (~46 Mb/s) and put that as the median... your high point would be 2x that, and your low point would be 0.

75-100 would be the range most people would fall under.

It's roughly ~46Mbps.

Though, you could potentially get 15,000GB @ 937.5Mbps on the 95th percentile, though that would be really hard.

Let me find a link to a thread that explains how you can get such a high Mbps but such low bandwidth...

please find me someone who has pushed 15tb with their 95th stats being 46mbps you have a better chance of getting struck by lighting.

In my experience it depends on two things.

- Geographic location of your users
- Usage pattern throughout 24h per user

If you have users worldwide (Truly evenly spread out) then 50Mbit would indeed do. In reality this is often not the case and if people use the service mostly during specific hours, you will get a sin graph.

Still, if all your users are from one location then you will see a higher amplitude in the graph. If you have 50/50 US and Europe for instance it will be much more spread and you might only need 70Mbit or so.

We calculate around 200 GB per mbit, so 15.000 / 200 = 75 mbit. Some customers use more (~ 160 GB per mbit) some less (250 GB per mbit).
