Why repl.it uses Google Cloud Platform?
i noticed something fishy when i accessed the speedtest.net website via repl.it, does repl.it have enough money to pay that huge amount of money to Go

What do you mean pay for their own? It's easier to use something others have made than make your own. I'm sure you know this logic. Google cloud platform is cheap, it scales very easily, and that is why it is one of the most popular computing engines out there. Please, do some thinking first: are they really free? Their quota limits are quite restricting in the computing world.2 years ago

“Why use GCP instead of their own?” Simple. Infrastructure (computers, data centers, etc) cost lots of money to set up. With the amount of traffic/usage on replit, starting a private data center would cost quite a bit and end up hurting the end user. GCP makes it easy and economical to set up things without having to worry about the physical infrastructure.2 years ago

I found on Google Cloud Platform page talking about repl.it while I'm investigating the suspicious case about repl.it using Google Cloud Platform. https://cloud.google.com/customers/repl-it#:~:text=Repl.it%20uses%20Google%20Container,and%20build%20and%20deploy%20pipelines.&text=The%20REPL%20functionality%20is%20coded,by%20developers%20and%20classroom%20coders.2 years ago

I wanted to archive twitch streams with repl.it since deepnote doesn't allows me to do so, so I'm very disappointed that the temporary storage is redu

@ZenEmulator is trying use the Internet Archive to store Twitch streams, and is uploading these streams to Repl.it, where they end up being stored. Is this against TOS for Internet Archive? @Coder100 @CodeLongAndPros2 years ago

If you have 5 bucks a month you can get a VPS on linode, but if it's temporary, split it and compress/transfer offsite2 years ago

Because of the increasing amount of users using the service, they are going to have to decrease the amount of storage they give you. Why in the world do you want to use REPLIT to ARCHIVE your streams? What in the world do you know how unreliable that is Why don't you do this locally smh2 years ago
