On the weekend I went and deployed my first Sold State Drive Array. 15 Mtron 32GB SSD drives in a MD1000 enclosure. Plentyoffish has a lot of images on every single page, unlike most dating sites. As a result i’m serving 5,500 images per second at peak and 50-60,000 new images being uploaded per day. Anyone else doing anything fancy with image serving ? Aside from the database, images are the biggest pain in the ass when it comes to running the site.
