comment How to block IP addresses in HAProxy?
Do you know of way to read the ips from a more flexible store, like db or seperate flat file?

comment CDNs - is there a delay between file submission and availability?
@Jay - yeah apparently its the time before it's purged from the CDN (not just the cache headers sent to the client), according to their support. The docs are a little more ambiguous though: support.netdna.com/howto/custom-expiry-headers.

comment CDNs - is there a delay between file submission and availability?
@Jay - yeah good point. I checked and it seems you can override the default cache expiry time in MaxCDN (they say 'no limit' but I'm sure there must be).

@MichaelHampton - wasn't familiar with it, but yes it seems like the way to go.

comment CDNs - is there a delay between file submission and availability?
Thanks! The files will not change, so I'm not worried about long cache rules. However there will be files added regularly, and I'm concerned about when these new files will become available to users after they are added via the API.

BTW - I realise that is a bit of an edge question (which presumably is why the vote to close). I don't think its a perfect match for SO, Serverfault or webmasters.

comment Is this a sensible way to scale Nginx for static content serving?
That's in the sense that NFS is not particularly known to be a performant solution, but that's the reason for my question, and as Dennis mentioned, NFS might not be a good fit. but if you know that your site can run out of a small VPS - I never said this, only that we are using VPS as the basis. There are many sites that have grown to a large scale on VPS (e.g. Pintest, Reddit - which has 200-odd EC2 instances AFAIK). The whole reason for my question is that I want to consider scalability of this part of the architecture now rather than later.

comment Is this a sensible way to scale Nginx for static content serving?
Thanks. Not sure I understand this sentence If you're thinking about using VPS and NFS, I don't think your concerns about scalability are justified. - could you clarify? At some point 1 machine is not going to cut it (VPS or not), so I'd rather have things set up for scale-out before that.
