"Und Programmieren ist sowieso keine Kulturtechnik, das ist eine Frage von Spezialisten. Es wäre geradezu absurd, das von allen zu verlangen."
Continuing our recently started series on software architecture:
Paul Tyma on the architecture of Mailinator: "At this point, Mailinator averages approximately 2.5 million emails per day. I have seen hourly spikes that would result in about 5 million in a day. [..] [Running on one] very modest machine with an AMD 2Ghz Athlon processor, 1G of ram (although it really doesn't need that much), and a boring (IDE, low-performance) 80G hard drive. And honestly, its really not very busy at all." (thx chris)
