Like the 30 ft. giant in 'Jack and the Beanstalk,' myths and fallacies abound regarding application scaling. Many blog posts show some performance data as time-series charts, but otherwise only offer a qualitative analysis. This talk is intended to remedy that by showing you how to QUANTIFY scalability. Time series are not sufficient to assess cost-benefit of cloud services and other scalability trade-offs. After reviewing the nonlinear constraints on the scalability of giants, we apply similar nonlinear data-analytics techniques to determine the universal scalability constraints on such well-known applications as: MySQL, Memcache, NGINX, Zookeeper, and Amazon AWS.
