We’re extremely happy with the initial feedback from the community as it went way beyond our expectations, so thank you! Please keep your suggestions coming as we work towards making minus better and more stable.
Over the next few days we’ll be adding many more features to minus along with correcting existing bugs. However I’d just like to take the time and talk a little bit about the minus platform and infrastructure.
On the server side, min.us is deployed on Amazon’s EC2 compute cloud. We use the Elastic Block Service to store our database for high availability, the S3 service to store image files with fault tolerance and elasticity.
Software-wise, our code is written in Python and built on a Django, MySql, Memcached, and Ubuntu stack.
There will be many more exciting things to come and we will be sure to keep everyone posted. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us!
