consider iis and mssql on one hand and apache and mysql on another. is it the same tactic when scaling iis and apache?
i got the basic scaling thing - separate web tier and db tier, and then db redundancy etc...
BUT how to scale an application running on iis?
for example, it used to run on one machine, now we want it on multiple machines? same question for something hosted on apache? lets saw wordpress (common example) - how to make it so that requests for a blog can be processed on more than one (virtual) machine in the cloud?
hope my question is at least somewhat clear, if not ask please.
basically i'm looking for a pattern when scaling web apps. any? any links to info perhaps?
CLOUD BASED especially.
