Using Erlang for the Web?

The task is to implement the parameterized impact (that is not static, but there are a finite number of configurations that are in printsepe, it is possible to cache) page embed player for users. Expect serious load — more than 5 million unique queries a day.

In General, always enough chords php + nginx + apc cache + memcache. As storage mongodb or redis. But the brain crave perversion, and it has long stuck to the idea of using erlang for web applications.

The question is, is it worth it? And if so, where better to watch.

You can still look.

>The question is, is it worth it?
Only if the brain craves perversion and the content is well cached.

For your task the Boss will be redundant. Good Misultin. Benchmark.
From all the responses it is clear that still stands.
Thank you, I will understand. - alysson48 commented on October 8th 19 at 03:14
I just noticed that in January Misultin froze.
Then it is better to watch from Cowboy. The big difference between them. In the benchmark it is also given. - Imani52 commented on October 8th 19 at 03:17

5 million hits per day is not such a big number for a project in php. So if you are not sure what profit will the use of erlang, the reason for its use can be only one "the brain wants perversions". If it is also in the conditions of the already working project is done, you should add one point to the problems of "adventures on the fifth point".

Personally, I'm in php-first project for erlang see only one niche — the retention of long-standing connections with the clients (web chat). If the project is jabber. Or if the project has a queue which can be good gash in RabbitMQ. In these cases it is very good shows itself.
Completely agree, the problem of introducing erlang is not worth it. And in General, in my opinion, it's not really the target use of language.
In this case the implementation itself is interesting (even from the standpoint of learning) and analysis work. Very much wants to compare the performance of a real application with tests that you can find online. - alysson48 commented on October 8th 19 at 03:16
Well then, nothing to think about. It's worth it, erlang is really very good. Even if solvable problem for him will be not a very good use, the experience will be extremely useful. - Imani52 commented on October 8th 19 at 03:19

Here are examples of Erlang sites on Nitrogen compatible framework N2O:
