Server Specs For An Online Casino Website


I want to create an online gambling site with slot machines and other casino games that will use flash. I want to buy a VPS for this purposes that will run CentOS. I need some help selecting the proper VPS. How much RAM do I need, what CPU and stuff?

Thank you!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The spec depends on what resources each user consumes.
Your main concern would potentially be the network throughput.

You gave to look at the specs of the components you use on the site
And tabulate the resources the vps needs based on your expected demand.

The items you plan to use should include resource per user consumed on the vps. User could be reflecting a grouping..... I.e. For 100 simulteneous users.......

We set up servers for various online companies. We worked with many casino sites. I must say that if you are going to have many visitors, you'd better go with a Dedicated server. Yes, it is expensive, but it is much more powerful and reliable. Here is one of  the sites that we were setting up - There is a also a list of other casinos at that page, they all use dedicated servers too.

You dont need it. Develop the site only. Create a structure and put demos of free slots like here See? You dont need any VPS...
