    Can ATOM servers handle proxy sites ?

    Hello everyone, can ATOM servers ( 2gb RAM ) handle proxy sites well? I mean medium sites, not large sites. Every site have about 500 visitor per day.

    Proxy sites need more RAM than CPU. So, yes Atoms can handle proxies well. But you will soon run out of RAM.

    Proxy sites typically aren't very CPU-intense, so an Atom CPU should be fine.

    Aha, web based , usualy i go for squid-cache backend when i need a proxy.

    looks like the atom will do the trick, if you can get more RAM , get it.

    Glype and other web based proxies will eat a Atom alive if you get any sort of long term returning traffic. They are very CPU intensive - CoderJosh must be thinking of a different application.

    I've been very happy with the Atoms. It should be fine for you unless you are hosting a high-traffic proxy site.

    That will work very well on an Atom. You will just need to watch your memory usage... Maybe have at least 2GB.
