Are any of you using your upload service here as a means for image-sharing on other websites? And if so, would it kill you if we stopped?
If we disallow sites other than ours from using our CDN bandwidth, we'd be able to see a significant cost-savings.

I know people believe CDN's are necessary when you reach a certain size/scale, but I'm not seeing it. It takes long enough for sites to load as is, why the super fast images are necessary? 20TB per month is less than 100mbps unmetered. Why not get a 100mbps burstable line and cut your costs dramatically?
Another thing... have you purchased equipment yet? I've got a hell of a lot more than 24 cores waiting to be populated in a datacenter right now.
