I’ve been asked to setup tile server and need to propose a server for the setup. We are planning to pre render the whole of North America so I guess I’ll have to setup tirex as well.
I have few questions regarding the proposed setup
- Is 64 GB RAM enough for the GIS database and tirex-batch. The tiles and GIS database will be updated on a daily basis.
- Is 12 CPU cores enough ?
- I plan to install the GIS postgresql database on SSD drive. Is 1 TB SSD enough for the GIS database ? Will it be sufficient for atleast 5 years ?
- What types of disk should be used for storing the tiles ? SSD or SAS or SATA ? The pre rendered tiles of North America will be updated on a daily basis.
- Which file system and RAID level is recommended for tile server ?
