Having helped setup and deploy 40 apps with my old team, I've learned a trick or two about what it takes to handle some traffic. Meteor is a little different than traditional 'static html' frameworks. The Meteor platform uses things like web sockets, DDP, and a pub/sub model to get data in the right spot. That means we can't just throw varnish in front of an app and get our 'magic scaling beans'.
