With all of these discussions of scalability on the G+ dominated servers, would it make sense for us to try a scaled infrastructure somewhere to confirm that it works or is there a pod doing this already? I’m thinking specifically something like:
- Load balancer in front of multiple Diaspora servers
- Static content served by an S3 (or comparable) object storage system
- DB layer with multiple nodes rather than a single node
Has anyone tried this or run something like that in production? Is that an overly ambitious thing to try to setup? As I work on the API Spec I was thinking that could be something where we could build that out and then use test servers to fill it up with a substantial amount of activity.
