Running a private image server
I am working on a project which will deal with "many gigabytes" of images. Generally, the images will be static with an approximate turnover of about 30% of the images per year. There will be no user supplied images. The server will need to crop or stitch images together, but no processing beyond that.
Traffic is very low right now - since it's just me developing the project.
Is this something a low end box can handle for the time being? I don't want to be a noisy neighbor.
