Scalable Web Architectures – Part IIPosted: March 3, 2007
I attended a talk by on of the Cal Henderson, and blogged about it.
I also found his book from oreilly.com
Cal mentioned that the inspiration for Flickr architecture came from the Live Journal Architecture, which got me looking into finding some articles.
This got me interested in scalable architectures. This got me Memcached – a general purpose distributed caching system that is developed by Danga Interactive and used by many other sites like Wikipedia, Facebook, Digg, Slashdot etc.
A friend (VP of engineering at Sulekha.com) mentioned that MySpace was based on .NET. I did a bit of searching and found this article in baseline.
My Search continues. Will keep this blog updated as I find more info.
