Mysql Replication Adapter from Rapleaf dev

Posted on August 28, 2007. Filed under: Ruby on Rails, Scaling |

The twitter does not scale was quite a hot topic of discussion that spun off talks that Ruby/Rails is the dog?? and PHP the dog food? awhile back and now thanks to the good fellows at Rapleaf, there should be no reason to say it takes 300 to scale a Rails app. Rapleaf just released a Mysql Replication Adapter that allows you to basically use multiple replication slave for reads and a single master writes. This type of scaling method has long been the standard paradigm when your web application’s bottleneck comes to the single DB that drives your web application.

Again scaling web application is not really hard because your platform (“or framework or language if you are really against ruby”) only allows a single master database, but because there could possibly be all sorts of different bottlenecks. The tough part is finding them and getting to the right solution. By the way I really liked this video about Youtube’s adventure in scaling Youtube to handle their exploding traffic.
