Customer Success Story
Connecting millions of friends takes a stronger network.
Flawless functionality is crucial to the success of an online social network. A high-performance data center is the foundation for processing user requests within milliseconds at times of high usage, because a service such as StayFriends relies on stable servers with no downtime.
With more than 13 million members in Germany and at least one million school pictures online, StayFriends is a very successful social network whose focus is to bring new relationships to old friends. It also has users in Sweden, France, Austria, and Switzerland.

StayFriends wanted to add a second data center and needed to enable its servers to communicate efficiently and quickly exchange data between two cities (Nuremberg and Berlin). The existing data center in Nuremberg included outdated switches and the overall number of switches was more than 70, which was not easy to administer.
