Summary
Adam Wiggins believes that now is the time of horizontal scalability achieved by using resources that are transient, shardable and share nothing with other resources. He gives as example several applications and a language: memcached, CouchDB, Hadoop, Redis, Varnish, RabbitMQ, Erlang, detailing how each one applies those principles.
