Description

Hi,

I'd like to scale up an application built with Django but the only doc related to it is this FAQ: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/faq/general/#does-django-scale
Am I the only one finding this answer unsatisfactory?
I mean, I was expecting some guidelines to setup the application in the right way to scale it up painless but the only information I've found is just to add more hardware.
I think this isn't even an answer.

What do I have to do to scale up Django?

Hi there wilk, I found several resources to give you some guidance with a quick Google search for "scaling up django". I believe you'll find them helpful.

For core developers, do we have more fleshed out docs on this elsewhere? If not, do we want to?

I think third party resources are sufficient. Much of "how to scale" is often application-specific and related to other components like your database. I'm not sure we could give any general Django-specific guidelines.

Hi Jeff,

I've just created a PR to add a link to "Scaling Django" from DjangoBook: https://github.com/django/django/pull/10297

Hope this can help.
