Living in a high-res future

As Zillow grew in popularity and agents began posting higher resolution photos with their listings, the company found that its legacy imaging system and data centers were running close to capacity every day, growing too expensive and processing images too slowly. Enter AWS.

Making a move to the cloud

To solve scalability, performance, and disaster recovery challenges, Zillow decided to move to AWS. The company now stores 100 TB of data—including 300 million images—on flexible AWS Cloud infrastructure, greatly simplifying data management. Zillow also uses AWS to intelligently throttle download speeds, enabling it to take advantage of image providers that support faster downloading without overloading ones that don’t.

Achieving better results with relevance

Capacity, bandwidth, and availability issues are a thing of the past for Zillow, as AWS provides more than enough scalability and performance to meet demand. Using AWS, Zillow gives sellers the ability to bring dream homes to life for prospective buyers through beautiful high-res images, served up quickly and reliably. That’s the comfort of innovation on AWS.
