Interesting stats

5 Oct

As a follow up to Matt’s September wrap up post, I thought it would be fun to post some more technical stats about the current WordPress.com infrastructure:

  • 80 physical processors
  • 139GB of RAM
  • 91 hard drives with a combined total of over 15 terabytes of storage space
  • 2000 database queries per second spread over 40 MySQL instances
  • Over 8 million objects stored in memcached serving over 8000 requests per second

The best part is that this is just the beginning! There are many more exciting things to come. Next up — expansion to 2 additional datacenters in the US.
