The Pirate Bay Moved to the Cloud

The Pirate Bay Moved to the Cloud

The largest BitTorrent tracker has been operating for almost a decade now. Within these years, The Pirate Bay faced endless line of problems and copyright owners were doing their best to make it disappear. However, the tracker managed to not just surpass them, but also to thrive. Now The Pirate Bay has moved from physical servers to the cloud.


Earlier in October, Swedish authorities have raided PRQ – a company that used to host the servers of The Pirate Bay – and seized a few of them. Although it is still unclear who exactly had suffered after this move, it is known that the TPB wasn’t amongst them. However, the portal wasn’t so lucky 6 years ago, when Swedish authorities seized some of its servers and kept the site offline for 3 days. From now on, it won’t happen any more. This move came as no surprise, taking into account that earlier this year the portal started a project based on flying drones. Industry observers made a conclusion that the file-sharing service was planning to go into the air soon.

The representatives of the tracker explain that their information now flows around in many clouds, encrypted and ready to be used any time. So, any efforts to attack the tracker will now be “an attack on everything and nothing”. From now on, The Pirate Bay’s new infrastructure will be hosted by a few cloud-based providers that don’t even know who their client is. So, if one of the providers cuts the website off, the TPB can just use new virtual servers from another one. All they will have to do is upload the VM-images and reconfigure the load-balancer in order to resurrect the portal.

The tracker also ensured that the location of its cloud providers is secure and all traffic is encrypted. The operators of The Pirate Bay are completely confident with their decision. In the meantime, the news about the tracker moving to the cloud led to various debates, both optimistic and less positive. The positive ones approve of the decision, because using several cloud hosting firms is very beneficial. But some believe that taking the tracker offline is still possible, since the load balancer will be hosted with a major Internet service provider, who can usually be easily dealt with for the government. Anyway, all experts agree that moving to the cloud makes The Pirate Bay more reliable than ever.

davros01 avatarHello Oldbudder. I am with Virgin in the Uk and they too block access to the Pirate Bay. Its simple to get round it and stick the Vs to the authority at the same time.

Go to google.

Type in Pirate Bay Proxies

You get a site called piratereverse, and the second link is called piratebayproxielist. Go to either of them and pick a link on the page and it takes you into the pirate bay via a proxy site / server that is not blocked. And then you can get whatever torrent you like as nomal and stick it into your favourite Utorrent program, and then download away as normal. Problem solved and so much for the UK ISPs sticking their noses in when they should keep out of it.

Crash1 avatar@HiDefHQ ... be prepared to have an admin or moderator remove your comment and give you a warning. ALL outside links in comments are disallowed ... even when you try to disguise the link (I used to use @'s to replace .'s and they still deleted my comment and gave a warning)

Daewoo avatar@davros01 It was not the ISPs fault. It was a Judge that passed a court order to block the Pirate Bay. As you are aware if you fail to comply with a court order you get locked up and/or fined.

So UK ISPs by law, HAVE to block TPB. Put the blame on the Judge, he passed the judgment and dose not seem to understand the Web.
