I am interested in how Wikipedia handles its large load so quickly across the globe. Is Wikipedia using a commercial CDN solution, or something else?
I did search about this topic, but because of the nature of what search engine users are commonly interested in, search results only return documentation about CDNs.
A CDN finder also did not return any results.
I had a quick look at The Wikimedia Meta Wiki: Wikimedia Servers, but it is stated that the article is quite outdated, but gives the hint that Wikimedia is not using any corporate solution.
