Posted by carinoverturf
This index finished up in just 13 days, thanks again to all the improvements our Big Data Processing team has been implementing to make our Mozscape processing pipeline more efficient. The team continues to dial out our virtual private cloud in Virginia as well as tweak, tune, and improve the time it takes to process 82 billion URLs.
We've been saying we're close to releasing our first index created on our own hardware – and now we really are! Stay tuned for a deep dive blog post into why and how we built our own private cloud.
