TECHNOLOGY STACK & PROJECTS
Traditionally the site was built with PHP, we're still using it a lot, but recent services are being written in languages like Python, Coffeescript, Node, Scala and Go.
We are heavy users of MySQL, Elasticsearch and Mongodb. We also have Node and Coffeescript in production. Most of our infrastructure is in-house, although we're happy to use AWS when the occasion arises. We are using Logstash, Kibana, Graphite and Salt towards the back of the stack, and looking at using Angular or something similar towards the front.
We have around 1200 servers in 4 data centers around the world. We serve over 2.5 billion videos per month and around 600GiB/s at peak hour.
