Grindr is the world’s largest gay social network for men. Designed for sexual encounters, dating or friendship, the Grindr app enables users to view nearby users, filter profiles, chat, and share pictures. It is a free and discreet app, available in 200 countries and used by 5-6 million users monthly and 2.4 million users daily.
As the world’s largest gay social network, Grindr needs to always ensure its system is performing up to standard. In addition, Grindr needs to deal with different protocols such as HTTP and XMPP.
By executing tests through CA BlazeMeter, Grindr can run tests at high scale while actively simulating usage and system performance patterns, load test different protocols other than session-based HTTP, easily gather data and reports on system behavior and get feedback.
Its time-to-market has accelerated dramatically: it increased its public releases from two to three a month to 12-15 a month, within six months. It also reduced downtime to zero and its system no longer collapses during outages.
