Data Caching at Tinder

Our backend infrastructure at Tinder relies on Redis-based caching to fulfill the requests generated by more than 2 billion uses of the Swipe® feature per day and hosts more than 30 billion matches to 190 countries globally. Most of our data operations are reads, which motivates the general data flow architecture of our backend microservices (see Figure 1).
