Running a garage startup

What does it mean to be a garage startup, especially when your goal is to crunch massive amounts of data? In our case, we mean this quite literally, and since a picture is worth a thousand words, take a peek. Obviously, we’re also using computers hosted by third-party providers whose data centers offer full redundancy and physical data protection. So keep in mind that what you’re seeing below is only for internal use / to support our free plan.

This said, it doesn’t have to be on-premise computing vs. cloud computing. We’ve found that it actually makes sense to combine local and cloud computing. For example, local computing can be used on a fixed basis to deal with regular load, while cloud computing can be used to accomodate overflow load. Cloud computing is a bit like renting movies: it’s cheap to rent one, as long as you don’t keep it for too long.
