|Servers, cache, CDN and peer to peer||0||21:13, 19 August 2011|
it makes long time i was looking for and first time i find something talking about the infrastructure of wikimedia / wikipedia. maybe it is not the exact place to tell my words, and if not please give the best place because i did not find it out.
Wikimedia projects are built to be open and shared by users.
But the infrastructure still is very centralised as it is runned as the standard model of online applications : organization owned and runned serveurs and CDN.
for sure the application as to be runned on a secured serveur, for edition and logged contributors.
Concerning static caching and CDN
maybe in a future, some peer to peer option could be integrated so that wikimedia contributors can allows a part of their own machine to hold for this static data.
Even if it is only for archive save.
This would allow us to feel more implicated in the support of the project and this might be also a support of the project for little cost.
Is there any plan for such peer to peer CDN development for the future ?
