    Just a random question. Does anybody know what servers Tesla uses for the API, where they are located and what are the specs? Thanks, just interested.

    In a modern micro-service oriented architecture, those questions aren't often relevant. I'd think the programming languages and platforms being used would be far more interesting (and a good way to find that out is often look at their career postings).

    Why would you want to know the hardware specs and where the servers are located? Because they're an international company, I'd strongly suspect that they've geo-located servers at various locations around the world (closer to the cars). In fact, in the USA, it appears that there are at least 2 data centers for Tesla (and likely more). In a brief test, I can see that there's likely an API data center in Kansas and California.

    You can check this thread to see if there are any details: Model S REST API
