Etsy’s Server Infrastructure

Etsy’s server infrastructure.

Instead of using Amazon AWS to run their service, Etsy has deployed their own servers.

1. HP DL380 with 96GB RAM, 16x 146GB hard disks (15k rpm)

2. SuperMicro with 4x nodes.

3. Hadoop Nodes with 2x 12-core cpu, 96GB RAM, 6x 1TB hard disks (7.2k rpm)

4. And so on.

Lots of SuperMicro and HP servers.

Lots of work to manage their own servers. Makes you wonder if Etsy would be better of just using Amazon AWS?
