The co-founders of AKF Partners, Marty Abbott and Michael Fisher, have published a new book titled Scalability Rules. It offers advice for managers, architects, developers and operations personnel who face scalability problems. It offers 50 “rules” from 12 broad categories and quantifies the potential risks and costs of each. Those rules include the following:

  • Rule 19: Relax Temporal Constraints
  • Rule 25: Make Use of Object Caches
  • Rule 29: Failing to Design for Rollback is Designing for Failure
  • Rule 32: Use the Right Type of Database Lock
  • Rule 46: Be Wary of Scaling through Third Parties
  • Rule 13: Design to Leverage the Cloud
