comment How do large companies backup their data?
I doubt Boogle backup the servers software as they seem to be able to build a server from bare metal very quickly. They do seem to have backup copies of user data.

comment Increase speed of small office MySQL server
Delays of three or five seconds are often indicative of network problems of some sort. These are common timeout periods. Try nslookup for a developer's hostname on the MySQL server. It should return almost immediately. If not, then you may have authentication delays.

comment How to serve 50m files as if they were in one directory?
Apache may serve the data up quickly, but the database may do the search quickly without having to reindex the website on each change. However, a rewrite scheme such as proposed by Steven is the way to handle putting the files on the file system.

comment How to serve 50m files as if they were in one directory?
You specified you were generating HTML files. Even if you can't generate the pages I would still consider putting them in a database. For JSON I believe a NoSQL database may be appropriate.

comment BIND/RNDC - Why do my subzones work and my actual zone doesn't?
@michael I believe the $ORIGIN is redundant, but it doesn't hurt. Likely breaks things severely if it doesn't match the domain it is configuring. That may be a good thing.

comment How can I set a short timeout with the ping command?
-W is th time the ping process waits for a response, and it may make sense in to set it well below the hop count when hop count is high, which it normally is. By three seconds you are usually getting into retry conditions. Some tools may allow the use of a finer grained timer for waits, but for most uses of ping, seconds are a reasonable unit.
