Thanks all

5000 128kbit 44100Hz mp3/ogg vorbis streams

50 sources 128kbit 44100Hz from other hardware send via dedicated network
card to the icecast server

The network traffic not be a problem

I chose the server that can fit?

Whether you can handle this much network traffic will depend on what
