Good HN thread on scaling a web app to 10K users

By Vasudev Ram

Saw this today on Hacker News:

What does it take to run a web app with 5K – 10K users?

I read the thread. Found that it had a number of good comments, on both sides of the equation - the business side, i.e. acquiring, retaining and supporting users, and the technical side, i.e. scaling the hardware and software to manage the load on the app. Many of the people who commented, run their own web apps at the same or higher scale.

Overall, a worthwhile read, IMO.
