Parler goes offline after AWS shuts off traffic to its clients
Looks like AWS has taken Parler servers offline, and the service is currently down.
Saw this on a discussion. But is it really that big a deal? I'm sure those guys can easily rent a rack on a DC somewhere and put up their own servers?
Surely not all colo providers would be averse to dealing with them?
Don't hold your breath. There's only a handful of firms that can handle traffic at that scale and I highly doubt Microsoft or the others would take their business. And it doesn't matter who's funding them, they can't afford to spin up their own onprem servers even if they managed to not get dropped by payment processors (which will be coming shortly).
