This was one of the more interesting revelations from our recent work shipping a Rust http service to production. Node is… no longer a clear win anywhere for me. Maybe rendering web pages.
(speed is at a distant fourth because, well, as I've seen recently, I don't have to pay much (any?) ergonomic cost to blow node out of the water with a rust http server w/r/t latency AND transactions per second.)
Ceejbot's mastodon instance. This is an overprovisioned, personally-run instance running on AWS. I welcome friends to create accounts here. I intend to run it as long as people are using it.
