From working within the development team of a large WordPress media site, to handling solutions at a managed hosting platform, I’ll share challenges and solutions encountered when scaling WordPress to handle millions of visits. In this Talk we will also discuss scaling from both a performance and stability standpoint, and when adding hardware is —and isn’t— the solution.

This talk will be cover how I utilized AWS services for stability, and will discuss the options of vertical versus horizontal scaling. I'll also touch on the benefits of caching as well.

Fantastic talk covering ways WordPress can scale, when certain approaches make more sense, and the challenges you're likely to encounter.

Nice one what can you do by just playing around with different infra setups and keep the code modifications in minimum.
