  1. Help for an old guy

    Any comments and advice would be most appreciated.

    A charitable trust In the planning stages of putting together a server to stream audio simulcast [radio programme]. Don't want to allow downloads, [illegal anyway] just want to have the music load and play in auto when our homepage loads after a hit.

    Trying to find the way of the future [multicasting] without it costing an arm and a leg for bandwidth, which the telcos in this country are real good at charging for. Can't really afford SCSI, but have seen serial ATA may be the go. Doing it 24/7 so definately need reliability. Have been told Samsung HDD's are worth a look nowadays?

    Not up with you guys technically, be gentle please. An 'ole learner' here!

    Finally also for our radio player computer a HDD for reliability 24/7
    [running an IBM DLTA 10gig 7200 deskstar at present. No problems to date YET? Need a bigger drive for MP3's and perhaps a back up?

    Advise and guidence would be most appreciated, it's a minefield out there, HELP

    Welcome to TechSpot

    Have a look at this website:

    For the most reliable HDs for 24/7 there is still nothing better than SCSII harddisks, they cost more, but outperform anything.
    Western Digital or Seagate are the leaders here.
