PlentyOfFish Update - 6 Billion Pageviews and 32 Billion Images a Month

Markus has a short update on their PlentyOfFish Architecture. Impressive November statistics:

  • 6 billion pageviews served
  • 32 billion images served
  • 6 million logins in one day
  • IM servers handle about 30 billion pageviews
  • 11 webservers (5 of which could be dropped)
  • Hired first DBA in July. They currently have a handful of employees.
  • All hosting/cdn costs  combined are under $70k/month.

Lesson: small organization, simple architecture, on raw hardware is still plenty profitable for PlentyOfFish.
