How All-Flash Arrays Help Plenty of Fish Users Find Love in A Flash

Online dating platform Plenty of Fish (POF) empowers its millions of users to connect with one another every day. As that client base expanded, POF outgrew its storage capacity, resulting in slow-loading pages and out-of-date data, something that could be catastrophic in such a competitive market.

That’s when POF turned to IBM all-flash storage technology to help accelerate and optimize the ways in which POF users find love. Now, those users are able to connect and interact practically in real time.
