Do you ever wanna check your Twitter or tweet about something that’s important to you and get the Fail Whale? Twitter serves 19 Billion searches per month. That’s more then Google or Bing. Sixty five million tweets a day from over a 190 million users. That requires some serious horsepower. But something in that kind of demand shouldn’t fail. Seems like a great case for the cloud, doesn’t it? Think about it, you’re serving that much data you would want to have almost infinite power and redundancy. You would also want some load balancing and maybe even a content distribution network.
So, who offers all of these things now, in one integrated form? The answer to that, and why it still doesn’t work coming up.
