    Welcome to Automattic/WordPress.com 

    Welcome to the guys and girls from Automattic/WordPress.com who joined us late yesterday.

    Hopefully their experience and input in scaling WP will prove invaluable as this group grows.

    Hi!

    Considerations 

    Lets list out some things to consider when looking to scale and some possible ways to overcome them.

    To start off the conversation here are a couple items from the mailing list discussion:

    • Uploaded media files (WP stores files in a local install dir that is not easily changable)
    • Updates to plugins and core
    • Adding additional databases
    • Load balancers
    • CDNs
    • Caching solutions

      Accessibility
      Edge Cases
      1 theme
      Release / Publication process
      Use of modern server-side techniques (CSS3, Less, JS etc)

      Don’t forget about front-end performance, minimizing latency, http requests, parallel downloads, e-tags and http headers to influence browser cache, et al

      Another consideration should be scaling vertically for as long as possible until you need to scale horizontally.
