I should build my own CDN instead of trusting BIG CORPS like Cloudflare

    Soon your own Internet, not joking but I feel like you already hate enough from big corps and you already provide some great free services

    Building it yourself instead of getting it somewhere else is always ++

    It is not that I dont like Big companies, but Big Companies ALWAYS misuse data, ALWAYS.

    Everything to increase profit.

    Isn't the purpose of CDN is having a SHIT-TON of servers around the globe to minimize latency and bandwidth? I doubt an individual can achieve that (unless he's a stupidly rich mofo)

    @irene If the target is just Europe or the US for example, a few server in those regions at high speed nodes might be enough.

    @sbiewald well, yes, but internet doesn't work like that 🤔

    @irene Why doesn't that work? Of course using a server in the US from Europe isn't low latency, but having some in each Europe's country (for Europe) would certainly suffice (for European users only of course).

    @irene it could work if he put it on a decentralized network but we all know this guy thinks blockchain is evil witchcraft

    Having adequate redundancy is harder than it looks tho 😉

    Edit: ...and expensive

    I don't think that you could build an own CDN.

    But you could try it, first start to build servers in every country and than more and more

    If you need DDoS protection, you will not be able to make it efficient against botnets ever. Otherwise, it could be good, but expensive choice.

    Yes, you should. I’d contribute.

    ..and then last long enough to see it become another mega-corp harvesting data for extra profit.

    @Wisecrack no, not if you let users pay with money instead of privacy.

    Well, the only thing I need is servers with an Anycast IP, then I can do the rest pretty easily :)

    @daviddh

    Ofcourse I can. I just need an AnyCast service, couple of servers (dont need to be in any country) and then I am good

    Not really, that is not the definition of it. But ofcourse - if the demand increases, the cost would of more servers would increase too.

    But it looks like I can get started with a budget of €100/month, for 5 PoC's

    Well yes it does.

    Basically, for those who are interested:

    A server with Varnish Cache or even nginx is enough to create a CDN. And ofcourse Anycast.
  • 1
    @Linux Anycast for HTTP(S)?
    I guess you mean something different here.
  • 2
    @sbiewald @Linux
    Okay I researched a bit and just found out how Anycast works.

    Interesting.

    @sbiewald

    Yes, Anycast.

    Anycast not something that have to do with DNS

    There is a docker container for that. :)

    @codenameszjames

    It can be done with Varnish or NGINX, no docker required :)
