Intel Xeon + AMD Ryzen
+ Open Source
Speed is at the heart of what we do, and it starts with the hardware that our code runs on. If the servers or network are slow or congested, we're in trouble.
The servers sit in professionally-operated edge datacenters around the world, with direct links to internet exchange points and local ISPs, truly putting your data as close your customers as possible. We always have at least two PoPs per region, provided by different vendors at different facilities, for maximum resiliency.
Latest-generation processors, DDR4 ECC memory, and NVME Gen-4 SSD storage all make a great foundation for ultra-fast computing. Then we load FreeBSD, a high-performance unix-based operating system. At the center of it all is Caddy web server, a lightweight and full-featured web server and proxy written in Golang.
How does hardware affect service speed?
For those who want to get a little more knitty-gritty, read our blog post about how we chose the hardware we did, inspired by Netflix's open source architecture.
