    = I use Yeitshare script

    My Main server- 2x6TB

    /root /Swap /boot /others = 100GB
    /tmp = 4TB
    /home = 1TB
    / =Everything else
    Using cPAnel Here

    If there is any problem with my partition please let me know

    My storage servers for now details----------------

    Server 1 = Location = X -For premium users only
    48TB server = 8x6TB =Access via FTP Only as per YS.

    Server 1 = Location = X -For premium users only

    Server 1 = Location = Y -For free users only
    48TB server = 8x6TB =User Direct upload as per YS.

    Server 1 = Location = Z -For non-registered users only
    48TB server = 8x6TB =User Direct upload as per YS.

    Partitions -

    /root /Swap /boot /others = 100GB
    /temp = 1TB
    /var/www = 42TB
    / =Everything else
    Ubuntu and Debian OS using. No panel.

    If there is any problem with my partition please let me know.

    I need help on this ASAP

    I would suggest you to go with scopehosts hosting provider, They do provide DDOS protected dedicated server as per your need, There you can get custom servers as per your configuration. I recommend you to contact them via Live Support, they may help you for your requirement.

    You will need to setup the partition as per the data you will stored. Where exactly your application will store data? /tmp partiton can be 1 TB, if you are going to allow huge upload size.

    Sounds good size wise. make sure you have enough bandwidth.

    I suggest you use xfilesharing or xvideosharing from sibsoft company

    The setup looks ok. Yetishare actually proposes the exact same setup you have.

    You must go for most upgraded Dedicated Servers with below specifications:
    Processor: Intel Xeon E3-1270 [1x Quad-Core]
    Hard Drives : 2X1,000 GB SATA II HDDs 7.200 RPM
    1 GBPS Port

    Hello it seems your setup is ok.

    The advice here so far really isn't that great. For a file/stoage server you don't need a ton of resources, you just need good IO throughput and a good amount of iops. You should opt for the most amount of drives rather than the size of them. More drives = more IOPS and throughput. I would also strongly recommend using hardware raid in raid-6 or higher.

    What bandwidth do you have on each of your file servers? As per our experience, when you host 48TB on one server (that must be hardware raid of course) - 1Gbps port is not enough. Some of our customers have to upgrade to 2Gbps bonding on such servers.

    Your setup looks fine. But in case the storage requirement increases you can mount some cloud storage box on your server.

    I also agree with this. More smaller drives and RAID storage. The first problem you'd encounter on a fast growing file hosting site is the I/O wait. Bandwidth and Storage can always be scaled up, but I/O bottleneck is a huge headache when not taken with enough consideration. Here's an article related to Disk I/O.

    You might also want to consider separating the webserver and database servers and tune up each for their needs, but you don't necessarily have to do this at the start or not at all unless you have serious issues of webserver and database server eating up each other's resources.

    Why is /tmp 4TB?

    Mine is 4Gb and I have users uploading 30-40 Gb files with no issues..

    For a storage server that will be serving files, it is better to have more independent disks rather that a a few with large storage capacity, as was already mentioned here. But i would not put the disks in raid, just let them be independent. For example 4 disks of 1TB each, will have more IOPS for serving files independently, than 2 disks of 4TB each for example. Provided those files are stored on various disks and not just heaped onto one disk.
