Not large in gigabytes (storage), but it takes some beefy servers to handle a traffic surge of members online at once. From a technical perspective - it's the processors and RAM, not the storage.
With the Smoke & Mirrors release, the forums & media section slowed to a crawl - and happened again with each White Centurion release window. And that's not cool. So hopefully this will fix that, or in the very least, help out. If not, we'll have to call in reinforcements and replace our current power source (Dana on a bicycle hooked up to a generator and a flux capacitor).
