|There's a large project on our roadmap to rework a big ole chunk of legacy code into something that is actually an asset for the company instead of an anchor.|
I'm considering giving it a run with a base of gunicorn/gevent/nginix/pyramid. Seems that gunicorn/gevent give us the ability to use threads where best, but without having to make everything callbacks. And Pyramid gives us a flexible framework to run our web service through (currently the main focus). Kicked around the idea of using M2/0MQ as a way to implement a SOA of sorts, but it feels like a bit to much.
So, if you were starting from scratch and wanted to build a robust high traffic web service (site, app, api, etc), what would you use?
