Ruby on Rails is a great framework for quickly building applications, but what happens when you are wildly successful and need to scale way up? This talk is a case study in the evolution of our Rails application from a monolithic "does everything" systems running on a hosted server to a service-oriented system running in the cloud. As part of this tale, we will also cover the migration from a single MySQL data store to an environment with sharded MySQL and several NoSQL variants. We will detail choices made along the way, the data used to make those choices, and distill the decision path down to a series of recommendations.
The audience will come away with concrete methods to scale their web applications and hints and heuristics to manage the evolution of their data.
