Response to: You don't know what you're talking about

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.

    It's irrelevant, you say?

    Now I'd prefer to place two cheap Linux boxes together than a big server (with expensive processors / ram).

    If I want to make user sessions available under failure on one of the boxes, can I do that with PHP? Does PHP replicate sessions between those two linux boxes?

    Go do some homework again...
