I was hoping for some advice
Our site has 2 million posts and 20k members. Typically we have 300-500 people online but this can rise to over 3000 or so during our peak periods (which only happen for some of the year).
We currently have a dedicated sever, the stats of which are:
Model Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 3.60GHz
CPU Speed 3.6 GHz
I recently contacted our hosts about a possible RAM upgrade and they replied that:
Since this is an older server, we can also migrate you to a a newer cloud (web) + vps (mysql) mini cluster.
This would have 6GB RAM for the Cloud web service + 2GB RAM for mysql for the same as we're paying for the above dedicated server.
Would the above setup cope better with xenforo than our current dedicated server? (I appreciate that's hard to answer but any thoughts/options are very much welcome).
