I’ve done some small tests so far and determined I can run a media server off of 1GB of Ram and 1CPU; this by no means would run much but with my development it could possibly make sense to work with it like this?
I’ll explain! My network utilizes a broker server that has the job of communicating with all the servers I connect. So for instance I may connect hundreds of chat-servers and this broker will keep track of each one. Users in the same room can be connected to different servers and broker will sort them securely.
Now where the media-server idea comes in, I want to maybe run hundreds of media-servers like this, my mindset to it. Can provide lowest latency possible, ensure if a network did go down an entire room isn’t destroyed. Keep costs cheap, readily deploy as I need or remove if necessary.
If I opted for more power, I fear a crash taking out hundreds of users and that being an attack on the site itself, successful crashes/reboots will be crucial. Any opinions on this
Also I’d like to thank the developers for putting in work on this project. It helps a lot, truthfully.
