Thanks for the great articles. One thing worth mentioning in addition to your suggestions though is the potential benefit of tuning your database configuration and optimizing your database access: ensuring proper indexes are in place, selectively de-normalizing, eliminating N+1 queries, etc. It's not going put off horizontal scaling forever, but one large machine (especially with SSD or an in memory data set) can serve a staggering volume if properly configured and used efficiently.
