Among our projects, the largest is Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Started in January 2001, it reached three million articles in over 125 languages in early 2006.

As of May 2006, Wikipedia has become one of the 20 most popular websites in the world (source: Alexa Internet analysis of Wikipedia traffic); and the Wikimedia servers in Florida, Amsterdam and Paris have daily peaks above 14,000 requests per second—approximately 4,300 pages per second—and serve up content at up to 200Mbit/s.

The Wikistats project by Erik Zachte aims to provide in-depth statistical analysis of all Wikimedia projects. See also the statistics directory on Meta-Wiki, a community-maintained list of links to related statistical analysis.
