PHP scalability at Jobby and Digg

Interesting look at PHP scalability in comparison to Java -- specifically its use at two 'Web 2.0' companies, Jobby and Digg.

Does a decent basic breakdown of the different costs -- and the conclusion seems to be that the biggest scalability issues came from the database component. Server tuning for PHP, unsurprisngly, turned out to be very key -- although I was surprised a big part of the solution involved using FastCGI.
