universal webapp architecture

I think its funny when people have  to redesign their architecture. It's like, what, you couldn't scale? Just throw some hardware at it.

Your framework had limits? Why'd you reuse it in a way that would eventually run into bottlenecks? Didn't you learn how the whole thing worked before deciding to implement it?

Your code is slowing down and bloating up, so you figure a redesign is easier than optimization? Congratulations, you've fallen victim to the worst thing you can do when faced with performance problems: throwing the baby out with the bath water.

Just optimize your current crappy system and add layers to make it get cheap performance, scale horizontally and get on with business. Redesign is usually a waste of business resources.
