Topic: 500,000 to 1million records a day. Can Rails scale to that?
We are planning to use rails+mysql to develop a website that sells Lotto Tickets. We expect 500,000 to 1 million(/8 hours) tickets sold a day. Each records should be 100 bytes long only.
And we also need to use SSL+Transaction Support.
The big question is Can Rails support that amount of traffic? Or I better consider PHP?
