Join Brandon Rich for an in-depth discussion in this video Architect apps for horizontal scaling, part of Amazon Web Services: Deploying and Provisioning.
- [Instructor] When we talk about…building apps for the cloud,…it's good to think about scaling from the outset.…Planning to scale starts with how you build your app.…When you build an application,…you hope it will attract a wide audience.…Of course, the more concurrent users your app attracts,…the more you are going to need to prepare to make sure…your app has the capacity to serve them well.…Let's assume that your application…is reasonably well-performing on its own.…Your app has the basic traits…of a well-performing application.…The server requests are small and as fast as possible,…Network calls and file I/O are minimized,…or avoided when possible,…and resource intensive processes are run asynchronously,…in the background, not occupying web workers.…
You've done all that and more,…and you're just running up against the limits…of your application server.…Maybe you're close to maxing out CPU, or RAM.…It's time to scale.…Scaling a web app comes in two flavors,…vertical and horizontal.…Vertical scaling means to simply increase…
