I should also mention a clear downside of this approach: It takes AWS, Linux, WordPress, etc. technical skills and attention. A great virtue of providers like MediaTemple or WP Engine is that they take such complexities / skill requirements out. YMMV.

comment Scalable WordPress Host for High-Volume Site?
When the site came to me for performance assistance, the initial uncached homepage response approached 2MB. Ze-ouch! I immediate cut that by 500KB and drove a bunch of the static files to a CDN. We were still serving several hundred KB per visitor. Unfortunately, the site was in production and load was rapidly spiking, limiting my freedom to change things on the fly.

FYI, I asked this question first on stackoverflow.com, before it being suggested to post here. So far, WordPress.com VIP hosting suggested, but it has limitations. (is.gd/k1VC7)
