I'm planning two setup's and wanted some input from the community.. I wanted some help figuring out how powerful of units i should build as well as what plug-ins to use and how you would configure things like clustering and what type of connection would be needed for such a task.

 

Project 1:

 

Needs to be able to handle around 50,000+ users online, used for IM only with no file transfer or video. Must be able to connect to other networks such as facebook, gtalk, aim, yahoo etc. So the end product will be a network that not only allows for its own IM service but allows people to connect to other networks and able to have 50,000+ people using the service in this way at any given time. system must also offer livehelp like fastpath.

 

1) How many servers would i need to do this?

2) How would you build this server (including type of cpu, number of cpu's, amount of ram, speed of ram, space on hdd ect. be as detailed as possible)

3) What type of router and/or switch would you use?

3) How fast of Internet would be good for this?

4) What OS would you prefer for this setup?

5) What plug-ins would you use for this type of setup?

6) how would you setup clustering if any needed?

7) If i was to build the units and get them online how much would you charge to set it all up and maintain it on a monthly basis?

8) Would you be interested in becoming a full-time member of our team? and willing to re-locate to NY? if so desired salary?

9) Any other tips or information you would like to share.

 

Project 2:

 

Needs to be able to handle around 10,000,000+ users online, used for IM/Voice/Video (like google hang-outs) with no file transfer. Must be able to connect to other networks such as facebook, gtalk, aim, yahoo etc. So the end product will be a network that not only allows for its own IM service but allows people to connect to other networks and able to have 10,000,000+ people using the service in this way at any given time. system must also offer livehelp like fastpath.

PS: Budget is moderate to high for this project but lets not build 20 $10k units to get this job done. Try to keep the budget respectable and as low as possible to get this job done correct. The job related question are legitimate as we are likely to need someone on hand to take care of the network, and it would be great if you were skilled in server administration all together not just xmpp. Web development skills also a huge plus. please send resumes to desirehireapp2 [at] gmail . com
