  1. Hello,

    I'm going to buy a E3-SSD-3 dedicated server.
    With my own plugins (max 7 on each instance), with +10 instances and reboots of servers often.
    What is the estimated number of people can hold this dedicated server ?

    All on one MC server? About 200.
  3. no, +10 instances on the dedicated server.

    With 10 instances you'll have a lot of overhead. I would limit the player count to 100, then see what your load looks like.
  5. Out curiosity what's your best server you guys offer for single threaded performance?

    By looking at their websites server listing it's probably the i7-4790.

  7. If I was you I'd go with two of the E3-SSD-3s', assuming you'd have an average of ~200 people on the whole network and about 10 instances.

    The Intel Xeon E3 1271 V3 and Intel Core i7 4790.

  9. I'm guessing either one handles MC servers like a beast?

    Yes, those two are some of the best available today.
  11. I think is 150 on each one, but this will depend on yours plugins and memory used.
