Dedicated Server purchased

Finally got myself pulled together to purchase a Dedicated Server. I’ve had a few over the time and as time flies by they become cheaper.
I remember when hosting was the biggest bill when running websites. This seems history. It’s probably still a big bill to pay for some – but with dropping prices future seems bright :-)
I choose an SP-32 Server – Intel Xeon E3-1270v6 – 32GB DDR4 ECC 2400 MHz – SoftRaid 2x2TB from OVH. It has a 1Gbps internet connection (500Mbps upload limit) and is attached to a 13Tbps network. It’s located in London (UK).
It should be sufficient to run what I need. All necessary packages have been installed (libavcodec56, ffmpeg, gpac, flvtool2). I choose to have ISPconfig (Debian 8) installed which makes it easier to manage all domains from one web interface.
