    General ThePLanet Question

    I was wondering if anyone could give a rough number of how many clients/customers theplanet/servermatrix has?

    As well as the number of servers on their network?

    =)

    I doubt that anybody that doesn't work there could really provide you with anything accurate, and I doubt anyone that works there would give you that information, but they do have 2 datacenters.

    They are quite large, as for how many customers they have, I don't think thats something they are going to release.

    Last I heard they had between 20-30,000 servers, but this was a few months back.

    Well you can sorta get a rough estimate because they do give you the square footage of their DCs. I tihnk 20-30k is a bit excessive but 10-15k is my guess.

    (minus room for hvac, security and all that)

    and their third DC in Infomart is not that big.

    Here are some numbers (though these change daily obviously)

    DLLSTX2: 14000
    DLLSTX4: 8200
    DLLSTX5: 1000+


    This data is old and I hear they now have around 25k servers overall...overtaking Ev1 by around 2k

    To some people, it most definately does (usually applies only to large corporations, etc.). But, for the average WHT'er, not at all.
