Today is the day that we give you proof that you aren’t the only one who, um, watches porn.
ExtremeTech was able to get a large amount of information from YouPorn, the second largest porn site concerning its backend.
Here are some of the finer details of their report:
- YouPorn has over 100 terabytes of porn on its server.
- The site delivers over 100 million page views each day.
- That amounts to almost a petabyte of a data transfered each day.
- When people are exceptionally busy on the site, it can deliver 4,000 pages a second. ExtremeTech calculates that that adds up to 800Gbps, or 100 gigabytes per second.
- Here’s the kicker: that’s about 2% of the Internet’s total traffic.
- And it’s only the second largest porn site in the world. Fear not — YouPorn has beefed up their servers to handle twice what is currently being delivered.
