Dedicated Server (Game Server Host)

1 month 3 weeks ago #20 by Bear
As you know our servers were taken down a few days ago and I have been testing different OS for the server to see where I can squeeze the most memory out of. RAM has been our bottleneck as we use over 90% of available RAM running 5 Game Servers BUT we seldom use more than 25% of our CPU.
I decided that even though Windows Server does cost you to run on a server it is much easier to run most games as they were designed to be ran in a Windows Environment. Windows also uses less resources than any Linux OS I tried. No wonder it is the industry standard for Game Server resellers.

Current Server:
AMD ?
6 cores @ 2.7g
16G DDR3 RAM
1TB HDD
$33 per month
Windows 16
$35 per month
TOTAL
$68 per month

I am checking out a new server and will try it for a month and see if I like it any better.

New Server
Intel Xeon E3-1225v3
Quad-Core, 4x 3.6 GHz
32 GB RAM
2x 500 GB SSD
Network 1 Gbit/s
includes Windows Server 2016 license
TOTAL
$61.99 per month

Not a huge savings but it IS a HUGE upgrade to RAM and the Drives!

I will let ya know how it works out.
