According to the flickr blog:
- They serve 12,000 photos a second at peak times — that’s 2,654,208,000 bits each and every second
- They set an all-time upload record May 28th: 2,070,075 photos in 24 hours!
- The Flickrverse has over 8.5 million registered members
So their bandwidth peaks are at 2.7 Gbit/s. That’s not bad at all….
