What sort of hardware is required for Piwik monitoring with 1M PageView per month. I am just wondering should i be setting up my own Analytics on a Cloud Machine with 256MB Ram. And how does it scale up?
From the FAQ
For example, a common way to load balance Piwik on 3 servers: Load balancer in front of (2x) webservers which are tracking/querying the (1x) Master mysql DB server.
For further optimization, a (1x) UI webserver can be added, to handle all API requests, UI requests, and run the cron archiving. This server can also be doubled and load balanced.
Typically, webserver boxes would be cheap to operate servers, and the Master DB server would be bigger (eg. multiple cores, 8G memory, fast disk access), which could scale to a certain point (around 1M pages per day).
So i would need 3 servers for 1M Pages View per day, Master DB would need 8GB RAM. Depending on hosting provider that is $250 - $350 per month. Adding in the two extra Server for the Tracking/ Querying, assuming 512MB is enough that is around $25 - $30 per node.
That is at least $300 per month for a 30M PV site? Please correct me if i am wrong.
