Pedal to the Metal
We’ve posted a new performance investigation here. In it we’re looking at how “singleton” servers scale up in Firebase 1.7 Enterprise Edition. And the answer: It smokes!
- We loaded 40 000 poker players on a 3 node cluster of cheap so called “pizza boxes”.
- Going from 1 to 2 nodes increased throughput with 50%, and from 2 to 3 with an additional 60%.
Read the above one more time: 40 000 players on a cluster that today would cost you less than €1500 is astounding! Granted, there no external integrations involved here, but still I think you’ll agree that it is pretty neat.
