what is the best way to scale up server set up for a high growth site? without getting a heart attack, where you can just open up a beer and watch tv as you push a red button to scale the server. lets assume the site is getting 100,000 people a day.And, in thirty days, it will be getting 9 million people a month, and in a few months it will get 9 million people a day. (I know it is a bit crazy)How would you structure a roll out?

two load balancers, two front end app servers, two database servers, and a cdn.And as traffic builds up, you would up the front end app servers, and maybe add two slave database servers? and maybe replicate the servers to east and the west to serve different parts of the world.What kind of hardware? I know it is a bit weird question, and it matters a lot on app, server hardware, server set up, style, class, lifestyle etc - I just want to see if there are any aha moments and awesome set ups that I am not aware of.
