Hey all. I was recently talking about Cloudflare’s infamous lava lamp wall with a friend, and an interesting question came up about it. Being a lava lamp owner myself, I’m well aware that they can only run for 8-10 hours at a given time before they have to cool down. Not allowing for a cooldown runs the risk of the lava lamp exploding, which is both dangerous and messy.
How does Cloudflare negate this issue? Do the lava lamps have ‘shifts’, where each lava lamp on the wall is automatically turned off after 8 hours, allowed to cool, then turned on again?
I would appreciate a response, I’m geniunely curious about this.
