That is mind-blowingly great stuff. I've passed it around to some friends as must-reads. The scale of many of these services is just breathtaking and it's incredibly interesting to see how various companies have tried to scale up and out. I found it particularly interesting that eBay abandoned most of the J2EE stack, and that most of the big-guys at this scale have 'rolled-their-own' infrastructure to handle it. Inspiring!
I also came across this interesting analysis by Dan. I've posted more thoughts on this topic here: The true meaning of linear scalabiltiyNati S.
Hello, thanks for the cross-link.Just wanted to say I think your link to Jeff's blog is broken (seems to point at my site)?Very best,Dan.
Arg, fixed the link. Thanks for the heads-up.
Nati, I was reading the blog entry you referenced. The white paper you published is behind a registration.That's likely intentional, but it lowers my chance of reading it, and I won't link to a registration only paper from these pages.Any open link to it?
Oops, it is fixed nowHere is the direct link for the scalability whitepaper
