Youtube’s architecture

Here is an article on how Youtube coped with all the traffic they got. It looks at how their architecture evolved –

Some eye-popping facts –

  • Supports the delivery of over 100 million videos per day as of 7/2006.
  • 2 sysadmins, 2 scalability software architects
  • 2 feature developers, 2 network engineers, 1 DBA

That’s my kind of philosophy – Keeping things simple and doing it efficiently.
