I'm not sure if you have the correct understanding of what scalability is.

The main concern of scalability is IMO:
If I have a server that can serve 1000 request per second, will it serve 2000/sec if I double the resources (CPU, memory, DB servers)?

But you are talking most of the time about the performance of PHP vs. Java

    I agree. Scalability is about what happens when you had more machines / web servers /applications servers / databases ... . Doesnt matter what you write it in, if you dont think about whats going to happen when you cluster your app, it aint going to scale.
