Digg on the LAMP Stack

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.
