Ex-Google Tech Lead Patrick Shyu talks about scalability, and how he grew a website to handle 10 million users (per month). I cover load balancing, content delivery networks, mysql query optimization, database master/slave replication, horizontal/vertical sharding, and more.

* Note, these experiences were from projects before I began working at Google, so I’m talking about my individual experiences (Google uses a ton more techniques, though the basic concepts are similar). I’m sure I missed some things, so please share in the comments below if you have thoughts on how to scale! I’d love to hear.
