Subject Hardware Recommendations for 1 Gbps forward proxy
Date Wed, 15 Oct 2014 12:09:50 GMT
Am looking at setting up a web cache which could support 1 Gbps of web traffic.
The application is web-caching at ISPs in Africa.  

Looking for some guidelines for CPU, Cache, RAM, Hard Disk for 1 Gbps     
Am leaning towards the new Xeon E5-2600v3 family which was launched in Sept 2014
A review of the series and performance can be found at Tom's Hardware.

The number of SKUs is mind boggling - would appreciate any guidance here

I don't want to overspecify this and spend a whole lot of $$ .
 The CPU cache size is usually  critical for networking type  applications.
 The E5-2600 with 10 cores @2.3 GHz and 2.5MBytes cache per core seems good

RAM - DDR4  would 64 GB be enough?
And SSD disk - say 500 GB?
