comment Server for Intranet with 14K visits per day
Agree, that sounds like overkill. One thing to check is your peak load tho, you might have 14k visits in a day, but 5k of them might happen between 9am & 10am ( when people start work ) check to see if their are usage patterns like this that might affect yor peak load.

comment RAID 10, how layout works?
Sounds like a strange idea to set up raid on top of partitions rather than disks. RAID is a "Redundant Array of Independent Disks", not partitions.

Make sure you read this about pointing a custom subdomain to S3 - docs.amazonwebservices.com/AmazonS3/latest/…

Go to the calculator link in my answer. Click on S3 in the left nav. In storage put 0.00005GB (50KB), In Data Transfer Out put 50GB (1,000,000 serves of the file) and in GET and Other Requests put 1,000,000 (number of get requests for the file), then click add to bill. You can see that it definitely is that cheap. It's about $8.50 a month without the free tier or ~$6 with it.

comment Good, inexpensive 1U pfSense Server Config for 100 Mbps throughput, some IPSec, few VPN
Duplicate of - serverfault.com/questions/212734/good-1u-rack-firewall . I'm serious, why did you feel the need to ask this question twice?

comment Prevent apache2 hammering
A single user can hammer the server manually (pressing f5 rather than a executing a script to hammer automatically) and that's enough to bring down the server? It must have some serious issues!!!!

There's several factors. 1. Space used to store the file. 2. Bandwidth used to serve the file. 3. Number of requests for the file. The calculator I linked to should let you adjust all these factors. Also consider upvoting or accepting this answer if it helps you.

If geolocation is not an issue and scale is your main concern, S3 is definitely where I would host the file, from the start. I don't see a lot of advantage to hosting the file on your own servers, then having to migrate your domain etc to point to S3 later. Save yourself the hassle and do it right from the start, S3 is only pay for what you use, so if its not popular at the start it will cost you just cents per month.

comment How do I stream video fast and what is required?
Why do you need 10Gbps ethernet? Does the rest of your network support it? I think you need to rewind a little bit and instead of jumping straight to speccing out a server, do some requirements modelling and work out exactly what it is the server needs to do. You've specced out a decent server, but it seems very general purpose. Also I think "professional television studio" is a bit misleading :P

comment 15 to 20 developers on VM
This is going to be unpopular on serverfault, but it sounds like your network admin needs a reality check and reminder that he works to support the people who do the billable work for the company. You should be looking to make your devs as productive and unencumbered as possible, not your network admin.

comment Can someone tell me what CRLF means?
Or the already detailed wikipedia entry on newlines? I mean how does this even belong on serverfault, what does it have to do with servers?

comment Can someone tell me what CRLF means?
Is it seriously easier to ask a question on server fault and wait for an answer than to spend 30 seconds googling?

The question you are asking is whether to scale up or out.
