MrSeb writes "From the story: 'It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a person in possession of a fast internet connection must be in want of some porn. While it’s difficult domain to penetrate — hard numbers are few and far between — we know for a fact that porn sites are some of the most trafficked parts of the internet. According to Google’s DoubleClick Ad Planner, which tracks users across the web with a cookie, dozens of adult destinations populate the top 500 websites. Xvideos, the largest porn site on the web with 4.4 billion page views per month, is three times the size of CNN or ESPN, and twice the size of Reddit. LiveJasmin isn’t much smaller. YouPorn, Tube8, and Pornhub — they’re all vast, vast sites that dwarf almost everything except the Googles and Facebooks of the internet.' In this story, ExtremeTech tackles the software and hardware stack of the world's largest websites (porn sites), and then follows up with some real-world numbers from YouPorn. Before you read, have a guess at how many gigabytes per second YouPorn transfers."
