comment which CDNs are popular websites using?
Great info, thanks. I see that MaxCDN list stackoverflow as a customer on their frontpage - wonder if that's still the case?

comment Is this a sensible way to scale Nginx for static content serving?
I see - good to know, thank you! I was really hoping to avoid having to have the application servers aware of the number/configuration of nginx servers and doing multiple operations (e.g. having to handle situation where one PUT fails). Regarding resyncs - you mean using rsync? Might it be viable just to update one server and have rsync deal with propagation after each file put?

comment Is my VPS server secure? Steps needed to make it secure, if not?
Yeah the linode library has a lot of good stuff in it. IMO though some of these security recommendations are a bit pointless when the Linode admin tool (which gives access to everything) does not implement them (pure username/password).

@WillyTarreau - could you point us to any information about how TCP settings should be adjusted for very high concurrency situations? (i.e. how to avoid such high memory usage). Thanks.
