Trying to clean these components repeatedly as the application changes state over time is simply error-prone. It's scaling the information that Flows through our Flux components that will knock our system over if we're not careful.

We'll start this section off with a look at how our Flux architectures can scale well on their own, without massive amounts of data entering the system. This also serves to illustrate the idea that these are in fact two separate problems—scaling the infrastructure of our Flux components versus scaling the volume of data that ...
