A website that cannot be scaled is a nightmare to maintain, whether
it be for forever replacing equipment, juggling configurations or
wasting time managing the network rather than building the business.
With Eddie, scalability is an integral part of the design.
Whenever more capacity is required, a new server can simply be
added to a site. There is no requirement that the new server be
the same as existing servers at the site in terms of speed or
operating system. After modifying the Eddie configuration files,
the capacity of the new server is immediately available.
Moreover, this capacity is available not only to that site, but to
the entire virtual server, even if it is distributed internationally,
through the use of the Eddie Load Balancing DNS Server package.
