Digg on the LAMP Stack
April 29, 2007 1 Comment
This is an interesting article on how Digg leverages the LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP). The article describes how Digg started with one server, added a load balancer and other tricks to scale up. Right now, they work with well over 100 servers and scalability always remains a challenge because they are growing so fast.
I would have liked a longer article with more technical details, but something is better than nothing I guess.
