  • since the DB is read/write you can't spawn multiple copy of it on multiple server
  • since this one server is used for all your queries, you can't really scale your website


  • I agree. These two statements contradict each other. I will go further and say that all client/server architectures suffer the same inherent flaw of not being scalable. Can you make them "scale"? Yes, but it is also true that anything can fly if you give it enough power. Hmmm, I wonder what would happen if Azure one day didn't have enough "power"? Hint: not good. Hint2: study the shipping giant Maersk NotPetya hack in Andy Greenberg's book "Sandworm" chapters 20-28. Hint3: think pandemic, only on 'cloudy thing' computers. Hint4: again, not good.
