I've already asked this question on the AWS forums but haven't had a response yet so I thought I'd up it up a bit to see if anyone here might have an idea about this:
We've a client who's talking about doing a project next year which would see up to 10 million people upload up to 5x 4MB files over a 24 hours period.
I guess I'd like to know if this seems way too much for s3 to be able to cope with, or maybe it'd be so insignificant it wouldn't cause any issues.
If we take these numbers as the max possible then a quick rough estimate would give
10 million X 5 X 4 = 200,000,000MB = 200TB
We'd be looking at an average transfer rate over 24 hours of around
8TB per hour 140GB per minute 2.3 GB per second
This obviously doesn't account for peaks in usage.
So, is this a 'Christ that's insane' or a 'Yeah should be fine' or somewhere inbetween?
Thanks in advance!
