>> Each server should handle 250 downloads at the same time (4 servers with 1 10Gbit shared Port, with limit rate to 800K/S),
>> My question is very simple:
>> Do i need another server(xeon 2609) for each existing server, to work as a frontend ssl server?
>> Or if the ssl protocol will not consume so much cpu power?
