Coffee Meets Bagel Partners with Redis Labs

Coffee Meets Bagel Premium

Coffee Meets Bagel has announced a partnership with in-memory database provider Redis Enterprise.

The dating app is looking to “dramatically improve its application performance and smoothly scale operations” as it targets further international growth.

A press release states that Coffee Meets Bagel’s existing “Cassandra” system had scaling issues, and the app experienced outages as a result.

“High performance has always been critical to our operations,” says Stephen Brandon, Engineering Manager, Infrastructure Operations at Coffee Meets Bagel.

“Redis Enterprise’s auto-scaling capabilities have eliminated days of manual effort previously required. In addition, we’ve had no problem achieving 99.99% uptime, and with the implementation of Redis on Flash, we’ve saved upwards of 40% for the year, without sacrificing latency.”

Jason Forget, Redis Labs’ CRO adds: “Redis Enterprise’s multi-faceted capabilities truly shine in its deployment at Coffee Meets Bagel.

“Supporting personalization, data ingest and data persistence at massive scale while maintaining low latency and high availability is difficult for most databases. Redis Enterprise is uniquely suited to serve such complex needs.”

In June, eharmony partnered with Redis. Legacy data storage provided by the existing ‘Voldemort’ system reportedly struggled with presenting relevant matches to singles in real time.
