It's difficult, maybe impossible, to know up front how much or in what ways your application will need to scale. But by decoupling parts of the application, you can at least ensure that the scaling process can be kept modular. Amir Shevat shows how some sharable pieces of the MantaRay messaging system can allow your app to grow beyond one box.
rating comment: This article presents an interesting approach of designing a scalable application. It shows, that your application is fully scalable, when seperating it into modules and providing mediators for communication between these modules. Furthermore it gives a brief overview of how the open source project MantaRay addresses this problem.
