Fun Info...

So I have started using Amazon Cloudfront for some of the images on MustangEvolution (Soon all, Avatars, Signatures and Profile pictures will use it too).

Basically, what it does, is store the images on Amazons data centers all across the world. It gives me stats that break it down by how many requests are given from each server. You might find it surprising to see some of the results.

Code:
 	United States
 	 	 $0.170 per GB - first 10 TB / month data transfer out	 0.190 GB	 0.03
 	 	 $0.010 per 10,000 GET Requests	 70,768 Requests	 0.07
 	 	 	 	 0.10
 	European Union
 	 	 $0.170 per GB - first 10 TB / month data transfer out	 0.003 GB	 0.01
 	 	 $0.012 per 10,000 GET Requests	 895 Requests	 0.01
 	 	 	 	 0.02
 	Japan
 	 	 $0.221 per GB - first 10 TB / month data transfer out	 0.001 GB	 0.01
 	 	 $0.013 per 10,000 GET Requests	 348 Requests	 0.01
 	 	 	 	 0.02
 	Hong Kong
 	 	 $0.210 per GB - first 10 TB / month data transfer out	 0.000894 GB	 0.01
 	 	 $0.012 per 10,000 GET Requests	 293 Requests	 0.01
 	 	 	 	 0.02
 	 	 	 View Usage Report	 0.16

Re: Fun Info...

Out of curiousity, why are we looking to spread our stuff out around the world and not just host it on the local server?

Re: Fun Info...

I did it more for the US than around the world. Amazon has data centers across the United States and for every request to the site it picks the closest location to that person to pull the file from.

Re: Fun Info...

Yes. For instance, Amazon has datacenters in each major region of the United States. This means that if you are in the northeast it pulls the image from the northeast datacenter

Our server is hosted in Atlanta. Meaning that no matter where you were in the US or world, the images always were pulled from Atlanta. This isn't ideal for someone living in Boston or Los Angles.

Re: Fun Info...

i think its a cloud computing concept. basically, you decentralize the storage/computing power to a third party where it distributes the content on their "cloud."

i think.
