Today we have rolled out a new
distributed image hosting architecture. In theory we can now handle up
to 1 billion pictures, more than we can ever dream of needing. Our
previous image architecture was on the verge of breaking and it could
only process a maximum of 150,000+ pictures per month.
To implement the new architecture we have borrowed some ideas from Ebay about how to cluster and name the image servers:
– i3.adoosimgs.com, etc.
We have also implemented some AJAX/iframe functions as well as extending the limit to 8 pictures per ad.
