Bandwidth? Roughly 3 Petabytes per month.

Around 2/3 of that is from the Cloudflare cache.

The cost is estimated to be $13,000 per month.

Even the harddrive/storage would get bricked if so much data was constantly being written and pruned on one macmini.

if 1 PB/mo = $13k then a $20 4chan pass is 77 GB of content for you to break even

$13k = 1 PB / mo.
$1 = 77 GB / mo
4chan pass = $20/yr

=> you need to consume 1.54 TB / yr to break even on your pass

if it's so cheap then why doesn't everyone have their own 4chan

He was running it for a while off a cluster of mac minis on a shelf mount, along with some second hand rack mount servers in a colo datacenter. I don't think he ever ran it from his house. Not sure what it is running off of now.

Creating a chan is not the problem. Getting people to use it is.
