The point I am trying to bring across is mainly that while it is always cool to say your website is hosted on Amazon's EC2 and uses Hadoop with some NoSQL database and can handle as many users as Google, it is not necessary. Such an effort is effectively a waste of time, especially when we already have some basic code written. The way I see it is that when you make a website, always expect to get ten times as many users as you would hope for, so that you are always prepared, but definitely do not expect any more, especially when your service is used for such a limited application as chemical spectroscopy. What I hope to achieve by the end of the week is convince them to use my WebApi that is already written and works pretty nicely, but we will see how everything progresses. Hope summer is going great for everyone. If anybody has any other suggestions for the project, feel free to comment.
