great writeup on scaling containers

From their newsletter: Celebrating 500k dev milestone with a global hackathon and a $35,000 prize!

PS: In the past Koding suffered from a few stability issues and it pained us. Now, we're powered by AWS and every VM you get is an AWS VM. No more LXC's, no hacks and no dockerization which means no more downtime. Just this month we have turned on more than a 100,000 VMs – yes you read that right… a 100,000 VMs with 99.9% uptime. If you have not done it yet, come give us another try… we guarantee that you will like it very much.
