Dude, I love this question and hope you get lots of great answers (I'd love to learn from it too, this is just about where I'm finding myself at this point) but dragonchild is speaking gospel. If you have to ask these questions, you're probably not ready to do the project (at least not alone). I'd say, go slowly and try to emulate other successful, *similar* architectures.

As far as books go, I just picked up Building Scalable Web Sites and Scalable Internet Architectures a couple of weeks ago. I find the first to be the worst O'Reilly title I own -- I'm only halfway through and having trouble forcing myself to read the rest -- packed with gems like: "here's a great technique, but it doesn't scale" and "you don't have to consider race conditions in your architecture as long as they're pretty rare." Scalable Internet Architectures I like much better. A good road map for real definitions and real planning. Flip through it at the bookstore and pick up a copy if you like it.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
