Case study: Big gains from small changes
One of our clients came to us with a performance issue on their Drupal 6 multi-site installation. Views were taking ages to save, the admin pages seemed unnecessarily sluggish, and clearing the cache put the site in danger of going down. They reported that the issue was most noticeable in their state-of-the-art hosting environment, yet was not reproducible on a local copy of the site -- a baffling scenario as their 8 web heads and 2 database servers were mostly idle while the site struggled along.
Node.js and Drupal
Drupal is a great platform, but it can't do everything. As your site grows, you'll likely encounter use cases that Drupal can't or shouldn't do. Some examples include interacting with third-party APIs while preserving good page loads, or performing repeated actions (polling, etc) that result in site updates. Fortunately, separating these kinds of problems from Drupal and moving them to specialized "sub-stacks" within or near your Drupal stack is easy to do.
