Scale Your Web Application — One Step at a Time (AWS Blog)

I came across this AWS blog post when searching for best practices for creating an architecture for an auto-scaling web app. It lays out the components and the reasons why it is done this way.

The 5 main steps, as outlined by the author, Saurabh Shrivastava, are-

  1. Ease server load
  2. Reduce read load by adding more read replicas
  3. Reduce write requests
  4. Introduce a more robust caching engine
  5. Scale your server
