Scalability of Facebook Architecture

Scalability is the ability of a system, network, or process to handle a growing amount of work in a capable manner or its ability to be enlarged to accommodate that growth. There is a lot of different elements behind the success of Facebook. Of course it’s mostly about vision, timin and the right people. It’s also about the availability of readily available technology and excellent technical architecture. This paper addresses and compares both scalable and non-scalable systems. The purpose of this paper is to present a scalable web interaction benchmarking setup, using as a case study a simulation of Facebook, and to explain Facebook’s main architecture.
