Hey Guys,

I’m not sure as to how the current setup is, but i’m presuming it’s one or two servers hosting the marketplaces.

I’ve been learning recently about cloud-networks, and how these sorts of networks operate and are effective in providing steamlined content to a vast array of users.

I was wondering if Envato ever thought of doing such thing as setting up a cloud network of servers, it might better serve visitors and provide faster load times..

Just an idea….

How does a cloud network work?

I must say though that after being dreadul a couple of months ago, the Envato servers have been doing a might fine job of late. Of course they could always be faster…. :)

We are, in fact, in the cloud (for some content, anyway)

There is always room to improve though, and in the future we will be looking to serve more content though CDNs. I think technically speaking our server environment can be described as a cloud too, but I’m getting kind of sick of hearing that word :P.

Yeah, I guess it’s more cluster than cloud.

But, It was just a thought.

I heard along with the redesign, the pages will be a lot more optimized aswell.

I heard ThemeForest’s new colour scheme is hot pink. Apparently Collis is taking revenge for people describing the green and brown as boring. But that’s just, you know, a rumour. I guess we’ll have to wait and see :-).

They should rename it to fabulousforest. Newgrounds introduced pink aura’s with their redesign that were considered as a “fab aura”. So this is just the logical way to go.

That only applies to static content though. What about processing? Are you guys running on something like Amazon’s EC2 ?

Yes!! That’d mean it will match my new template: Bright Pink SpottyPress :)

I heard a little something that they might be putting together a developer’ish blog that explains their entire tech setup.

Everything from their nginx reverse proxies through to database setup and amazon s3 storage.

I would be really interested in reading this :) especially seeing some updated stats on hits / file transfers across the networks.
