Rails uses a share-nothing architecture, just like LAMP, and can scale
to kingdom come.  At Omniture we used PHP and MySQL to scale far

Have you ever had to deal with millions of INSERTs per minute?  I
have, and I'm here to tell you that it can be done with LAMP, Rails or
any other share-nothing architecture.
