I was reading this [theregister.co.uk
...] which got me to wondering.
What is the average size of a web site?
Do websites run out of space and need to upgrade storage?
Example: My hobby site resides on a 400mb shared host, and uses 40% (including pages, images, data, email accounts). Some of the commercial sites I work on approach 500gb in size, in house servers, etc.
Where do you fall?
What special operations do you use (if any)?
Are you Shared? Dedicated? Self-hosted?
The chase for more data, customer/user targeting, et al. means larger and larger systems with greater speed and capacity. Analytics on billions of transactions/records requires big solutions, yet very good results can still be obtained on minimalist specifications.
