Porn. We all know the Internet is filled with it, and would be a contributing factor toward cloud storage upgrades for many porn sites, and many, many more home users. ExtremeTech talked to YouPorn who are the second largest porn site, about their backend, and how many people use their "services".

Some of the figures are pretty insane, which we've listed below:

 

  • 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.

 

At it's peak, YouPorn makes up 2-percent of the Internet's total traffic. It may not sound like a lot, but 2-percent of the entire Internet traffic is quite amazing. If it were inches, then it'd be a different story altogether.
