Ayende Rahien shares his thoughts on an excellent article by Udi Dahan on the myth of infinite scalability (http://www.udidahan.com/2011/12/29/the-myth-of-infinite-scalability/). He adds his own 2 cents by setting a goal for scalability when designing a system. By setting a goal that is an order of magnitude above your projected requirements, you can be sure to design a system that can scale comfortably without overengineering a solution that doesn't meet your users requirements (or fails to launch).
