Inside MySpace: Designing high growth computing infrastructure

One thought on “Inside MySpace: Designing high growth computing infrastructure”

  1. The key thing that came through to me in that article was that the MySpace developers had absolutely no idea how to deal with high loads, since (like most developers) they’d never had any experience. ColdFusion??? SQL Server??? ColdFusion has never been intended to be high performance, and SQL Server still doesn’t scale as well as other RDBMS products (Microsoft’s marketing claims notwithstanding).

    Bringing in some outside expertise could have saved them a lot of time and money — and saved MySpace users a lot of grief.
