    Scalable Web Architectures - Common Patterns & Approaches

    Everyone's doing it - the poster children for "web 2.0" are built on top of the LAMP stack. The next generation of web based applications are built with free tools, with few people understanding the best way to scale these applications out. But patterns emerged very early on - all of these applications share some common architectural principles which seem to be working. In this brief state-of-the-world, we'll look at the various approaches to scalable internet application architectures and what we can learn from them.
