Daily Tech News 7 September2021

Top Story

  • Privacy is one thing, but not even ProtonMail is going to jail for you. (ZDNet)

    ProtonMail is based in Switzerland and doesn't release private information on its customers without an order from the Swiss courts. The problem is, the Swiss courts are complying with foreign requests for such orders - the number has skyrocketed from 13 in 2017 to 3572 in 2020.

    Still a better bet than Gmail.

  • What it takes to run Mangadex. (Mangadex)

    The site hosts a roughly infinite amount of Japanese, Korean, and Chinese comics, translated by fans into every human language including some that no-one actually knows how to read. It handles more than 10 million unique visitors per month and 2000 pages per second.

    On a budget of around $1500 per month.

    They run two separate locations, using KVM and LXC managed with Proxmox, with MySQL, Redis, Elasticsearch, and RabbitMQ. They moved reluctantly to Ubuntu 20.04 from CentOS 7 because CentOS 8 is basically dead. I moved rather earlier than that, but for much the same reason.

    It's a good look at a system built by people who know what they are doing but don't have VC money to splash around.

  • The Gigabyte AORUS 7000s goes whoosh. (Serve the Home)

    It is one of he fastest M.2 SSDs available, delivering up to - in fact, slightly over - 7GB per second on sequential reads, and sustaining over 1GB per second on sequential writes even when its pseudo-SLC cache is long since filled up.

    $200 for 1TB is a lot more than the cheapest models, but it's a lot faster.

Disclaimer: This way to the egress. (Egress means plan.)
