Good Architecture (Part II)

I found this article by Jay Creps (blog added to the blog roll on the right) to be very interesting, and goes to the heart of whether "heighly scalabe, distributed fault tolerant systems" really are more reliable than classic monolithic systems.

Granted, if you are building a high volume site, you might have no choice, but be honest and analyze whether you really are building that high volume site. There is something to be said about software that has been in production for decades - it might not be cool, but it is certainly well tested and well known...
