100,000 hits a day is not a low. I get that some day on my web server
without problem and without one request dropped.
Most frameworks web2py, Django, Pylons can handle that kind of load
since Python is not the bottle neck.
You have to follow some tricks:
1) have the web server serve static pages directly and set the pragma
cache expire to one month
2) cache all pages that do not have forms for at least few minutes
3) avoid database joins
4) use a server with at least 512KB Ram.
5) if you pages are large, use gzip compression
If you develop your app with the web2py framework, you always have the
option to deploy on the Google App Engine. If you can live with their
constraints you should have no scalability problems.
