Setting up a cluster of servers for true buddypress/wordpress scalability
Hi all, I know this is probably out of scope for these forums to many users but im asking the question here because im interested in anyones experience with using a cluster of servers for their buddypress setup.
I can see the question has came up a few times about how scalable is buddypress etc, now i do realize true scalability boils down to the hardware and the software config you have to throw at it.
The goal i have set at the minute is to have one dedicated server serving as a dedicated database server, another server acting as a load balancer and 2 other servers running in unity to serve the website itself, now i also want this cluster of servers to be expandable (meaning i can add extra servers into the equation at will, for instance i may want to setup 2 more dedicated servers in future to serve as dedicated file servers for media uploaded by users).
So i have a few questions to those of you that may be in the know,have you any tips or tricks i may need to consider with this kind of setup, do you have any experience using apache mesos and if so would you say this is a good way to go? have you any experience in running memcached with multiple servers running in a cluster as i have read that you can implement memcache to run this way efficiently?, are there any recommended guides or routes i should take that you could suggest to help me explore all of my options?
Thx in advance.
