A somewhat unusual question, but here goes!
Main Webserver has a 100Mbps network card, and we’re peaking it rather often at 90-95Mbps. This is beginning to cause slowdowns for our members. The root cause of the problem is serving video files. Generally about 100-120 people are viewing videos at any given moment.
Using rtMedia Pro, and rtMedia’s ffmpeg plugin for the encoding on our server.
I’d like to buy a second webserver – only to host video files on, nothing more. I dont care which server does the encoding. All I want is the completed videos on another server and then for the new server to serve the video files, and the current main server to serve the WordPress pages.
Any ideas on the best way to accomplish this?
