  • Define streaming - just serving up video files in a pretty interface or real time encoding?

  • SSD With High CPU and Ram with multiple data centers and a company like Google to handle all this 😂

    As I check, the script you mentioned support Amazon S3. It'll be the ready-for-production solution and you don't have to worry much about storage or redundancy. The only thing to think about is the pricing.

    If you are going for dedicated:
    Storage-wise: you can just store video on HDD. SSD speed and HDD speed are not that big gap if you're only serving 50-100 users. You will need some raid1 or 5 in case of data-loss.

    Bandwidth-wise: 50-100 users will be fine on a 1gbps shared connection watching 720p videos. If you demand more than that, you may need multiple connection and scattered servers to handle that.

    CPU and RAM-wise: not much power will be need, if you just only store and serve video. If you want to transcript video then it'll be another math.

  • If you want to stream up to 50 users, you need something bigger than 100Mbit.
    But unsure about if a SSD is needed, 1080p HD uses 0.625 MB/s so multiply that by 50.

    Does not look like you need a SSD to me, just a bigger Network port.

    Don't assume sequential access when in fact it's more like random access which is a lot slower on HDDs.

    Well, yea that could bust the HDD.
