The Pirate Bay ditches servers and moves to the cloud to make it almost untouchable
In a move that will almost certainly infuriate copyright authorities and the governments that support them, the world’s most popular Bittorrent sharing website The Pirate Bay has ditched its servers and moved to the cloud, ensuring that it can remain operational at all times. The Next Web reports.
Making an announcement on its official blog, The Pirate Bay details how it dropped static trackers, then ditching torrent files back in January – when it switched to Magnet links. Now, the website has moved its data into the ever expanding network of cloud hosting services, allowing it to switch between various site deployments, should authorities try to take it down or malicious attackers attempt to bring it to its knees.
