Lecture by Brion Vibber, CTO of Wikipedia

I recently attended a lecture by Brion Vibber, chief technology officer of Wikipedia. The Orlando Java User's Group hosted Brion at its monthly meeting and Brion gave a great overview of Wikipedia's technology infrastructure.

No big surprise, Wikipedia runs on a typical LAMP stack. They use tools like Squid and memcached to help manage the traffic, but in the end, it's LAMP. Brion explained that while the main servers for Wikipedia are located in Florida, they also have two donated server farms in Seoul and Amsterdam.
