The building, scaling and deployment of your web application is quite the scary adventure. What starts out as a small development project hosted on a local environment can soon become an unwieldy beast. In this talk, we will discuss options and ways you can scale your web application to manage increased traffic while keeping response times to a minimum. This includes instance sizes, component unbundling, database replication and load balancing.
