We’ve been getting feedback that the site feels more snappy over the past few days, and there’s good reason for it too. Last Thursday we more than doubled the number of machines serving up Blip.fm. Without getting too nerdy, this means things will be fast and reliable even during peak hours. And, as more people start using Blip.fm, we will continue to add resources as needed to keep things running smoove.
We’re still running just a fraction of the hardware that the big guys like Yahoo!, Google, or even Digg, have but we’ve proven that our product can scale, thanks to a solid core framework and some clever engineers. That’s a pretty big stepping stone for a website that’s only been around a few months.
So bring your friends, I want to buy more servers.
