    Very interesting talk on the scaling challenge at WordPress.com.

    Some key points:
    500 million database tables
    3 data centers in USA
    400.000 shards moved per day
    storage on SSD
    ~10% of total infrastructure costs are related to backups
    ~500 GB / shard
    50 million sites
    2.200 servers, and 500 database servers

  2. Is there any documentation on using hyperDB?
    I want to start simple 😉

    Awesome talk, there’s so much we take for granted when it comes to infrastructure and it’s amazing to see the dedication and ingenuity being put into these scaling solutions.
