Real World Website Architectures

Have you ever wondered how major sites are logically and physically built?  Not as some high level with shaded boxes but at real platform level details.

looking for a site like this for a while.
No theory here, just real details about the servers, platforms, db’s,
caching, apache mods etc. that the “big boys” use – Facebook, Digg,
YouTube, craigslist, MySpace, Wikipedia, PlentyOfFish, Amazon and more…

    Thanks for the link! The next time somebody asks me to clone Amazon, eBay, YouTube, or MySpace for $500 I’ll just send them to that site so they can get real.
