what kind of server does myspace have?

I was wondering what kind of server a website like myspace.com have.  With more
than 30,000,000 visitors per day and with music, images, videos, forums etc...
and what kind of connection do they have??

The above is largely about the software architecture at myspace.   The hardware architecture is summarized nicely here:  http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1895,1947684,00.asp

To quote from this article:

"  MySpace's extensive IT architecture currently features 2,682 Web servers, 90 Cache servers with 16GB RAM, 450 Dart Servers, 60 database servers, 150 media processing servers, 1,000 disks in a SAN (storage area network) deployment, three data centers and 17,000MB per second of bandwidth throughput."

they most certainly have more than 1 server.
so they also would have multiple connections because they need at least 1 connection to each server.
they likely have hardware which can route based on traffic/congestion, so that the load is evenly distributed.

It's not a PC :-)

Read this to get a good idea of the server farm they use to implement myspace.com:
