How to choose a Media Server for a 1500 employee non-profit organization?

By srr899 ·
I am recently looking for a proper server for a 1500 employee company. Basically streaming video and audio for educational purpose would be sufficient - I am not looking at VoIP functionalities. Just wondering what kind of configuration should i look at? How much bandwidth would it occupy during peak access time? And of course the price - could you recommend some places for an estimation? What are my options for security protection? Is there any template for business case? Thank you in advance. R

Storage Server

Hi, I suggest a Storage server or a SAN. If you are streamming internaly it will be based on the type of switches you have. Streaming Externaly depends on the ISP connection. I suggest dedicating a T3 for streaming externaly and giga switches internaly. Hope this helps.

Also See for storage if you dont mind refurbished items.
