For high load websites, prefer symfony

The symfony advent calendar is currently promoted in the home page of ajaxian, digg and del.ico.us.

The day eight concerning AJAX seems to interest a lot of people. Welcome to the newcomers and enjoy the development of askeet! And be sure to come back to visit us, there will be more AJAX tutorials before the end of the advent calendar.

By the way, we received more than 5,000 visits in the last hour, the AJAX movie was downloaded more than 20,000 times, and the server twiddles its thumbs. Did we mention that the symfony website was built with symfony?

Comments

What kind of hardware is supporting the symfony project site? Have you ever had to upgrade the hardware due to server load?
Answer (from the askeet forum):

The symfony server:
- 2 Xeon procs 2.4 Ghz
- 2Go RAM
- SCSI disks

When a lot of users came from digg.com and del.icio.us (when we released AJAX stuff and the shopping cart screencast), the server seemed to be idle.
