I'm afraid you don't know what scalability is.

So you say PHP scales horizontally? Vertically? Does session replication in a clustered environment mean something to you?

Now go home and do some homework.

    For anyone interested not aware what this jargonified statement of the obvious is;

    Vertical = add more processor / ram etc. to existing server
    Horizontal = add new machines

    It's completely irrelevant to PHP because it's an OS level issue (e.g. does Linux scale horizontally and vertically? Ask IBM.). Course you might miss that if you've been convinced that the operating system has been abstracted out of the picture.
