I have learned loads in the past few weeks re jitsi thanks to posts here, and have successfully moved from having a local test install (virtual machine on our QNAP NAS) to getting our own jitsi meet running on an AWS EC2 server
I have deployed a c5.xlarge instance as I had read that that was ideal, however I am unclear as to how many simultaneous conferences this will support, and need to ensure that we can support a conference in early June that will need 4 rooms, each with 25-30 participants running concurrently with up to 15 more rooms, which will just be 1-to-1.
I have consumed several posts and videos regarding scaling the jitsi on AWS but am struggling with some of the information being out of date, although it does seem clear that I will need to add additional videobridges? Any pointers there would be much appreciated and also hopefully someone can please point me on the right path with a few specific questions:
Will a single c5.xlarge instance handle the above scenario, or will I need to add at least one additional videobridge, or perhaps an auto-scaling group of additional videobridges?
Is there a difference between provisioning a single, more powerful instance (e.g. c5.9xlarge, 36c and 72GB RAM) as opposed to auto-scaling 9x multiple, less powerful instances (e.g. c5.xlarge, 4c 8GB) which would have the same cores/RAM… (other than the cost implication)
Would a more powerful single instance actually handle the required scenario?
