I have this config.
- Quad core i7 930 (x64)
- 6gb ram
- php language for website
- mysql and it is possible the use of cassandra
- SSL protocol
- three hundred thousand visits (daily)
And i have this requisites:
- linux server (i prefer a distro with GUI to install) - high scalability - Fast - something faster than apache ? (LiteSpeed ?, Nginx ?, Cherokee ? )
My question is:
what is the most indicated distro (debian ?) and webserver ?
Is the hardware config enough ?, a ssd make difference in the performance ?
From what number daily visits makes sense an architecture distributed ?
