Last days I worked setting up a new web serving structure for Wine , the largest wine’s e-commerce in Latin America. After testing, studying and learning a lot, we built a nice solution based on nginx and memcached . I will use a picture to describe the architecture: As you can see, when a client do a request to the nginx server, it first checks on memcached if the response is already cached. If the response was not found on cache server, then nginx forward the request to Tomcat , which process the request, cache the response on memcached and returns it to nginx. Tomcat works only for the first client, and all other clients requesting the same resource will get the cached response on RAM.
With the phenomenal growth in Internet usage, a Web server's limited scalability often is a bottleneck when handling increased user loads. In fact, scalability is a necessity when business expansion results in more user interaction with your Web applications. These applications include functions such as chat, collaboration, bidding, RSS broadcast, GPS, and real-time data.
October 28, 2010 – 6:09 pm Tags: Web Mongrel is a refreshing approach to web servers. We’re all familiar with the Apache server and many of us have used Lighthttpd and Nginx and maybe some others too. So what makes Mongrel special? It’s language agnostic. It doesn’t have a PHP module, it doesn’t have a Python module, and yet you can still use those languages (and plenty more) with it, with very little effort to integrate new languages.
