You can add as many storage nodes / disks and file trackers (file
location lookup and replication management) as you like. File
serving is straight HTTP, and you can use your webserver of choice to
replace mogile's built-in server. So the bottlenecks there are the
same for static file serving, distributed across your storage nodes.
File location lookups (key to URL) can be cached to avoid overloading
trackers. At some point, the database behind your trackers might be
a bottleneck. Pick your favorite database clustering / replication /
partitioning scheme, or partition at your application to multiple
As usual, all of this is completely dependent on your application and
