Match.com Halves Server Farm, Doubles Speed with ASP.NET and Windows Server

by John Peterson

I got the following email from my contact at Microsoft just in time for Valentine's day:

Hi John,

Long time no chat! As usual, I like to take those opportunities to touch base with a small tidbit of interesting information you will find interesting. This is very cool. Microsoft, today, highlighted a new customer that is appropriately timed for this season of love (hint: Valentine's Day is Saturday). I thought you would be interested because not only is it a top 25 Web site, but it also has an amazing technology story. The customer, Match.com, used Visual Studio .NET 2003 and ASP.NET running on Windows Server 2003 to update its transaction-intensive Web site, enabling it to eliminate close to 60 servers, double its Web site performance and maximize developer productivity.

"We've seen a huge business savings, and will continue to do so because we can offer extremely fast development cycles," said Jason Alexander, technical development lead at Match.com. "Given the richness of the Microsoft .NET Framework and the productivity of Visual Studio .NET, we're able to expand on our previous feature set and easily refactor, debug and maintain existing code."

To see how ASP.NET has helped developers "match" up much faster check out the links below:

Press release: http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2004/feb04/02-12NETLoveConnectionsPR.asp

Hope everything is going well in your neck of the woods. Drop me a line and let me know how you are doing. This year is going to be VERY exciting for ASP .NET Developers ;-)

While there's nothing that exciting about the case study, it's still an interesting read and just goes to show that ASP.NET can handle even very large projects very efficiently.
