I'm in a situation where I'm going to have to deploy a fair number of streaming servers. I have primarily done production streaming with Real/Helix streaming servers in the past and have been contemplating adding support for quicktime streaming. We've been using DSS in a lab environment on single and dual processor Linux machines with quite a bit of success and have also been doing some testing on a dual 2.7ghz G5 with QTSS and tiger. Has anyone on the list done a (horrible pun?) Apples to Oranges benchmark for similarly configured (other than G5 vs iX86) servers? Money isn't really an issue here, but I can't help but feel nervous about ordering a bunch of Xserves when I know that Apple is in the midst of another processor "phase change". Having gotten stuck in the middle during the 680x0-->PPC change, I just don't want to go through that again. However, if there is a genuine performance advantage to sticking with QTSS and the G5 platform, I'm all ears. This is for an environment that will have to support several to many tens of thousands of simultaneous broadband connections. Any suggestions or pointers towards real world benchmarks or case studies would be greatly appreciated.
