SOLVED: Achieving high concurrency in app that performs reading/writing to database?


I'm working to design a middle layer for an application that will receive up to ~5000 requests every few seconds and need to retrieve information from a database. I've been looking at use the Play Framework (I use scala for my REST api design) as they say its fully async and built on Akka. However, the main bottleneck of any solution seems to happen during read/writes to the database. Many Database cannot support simultaneous read/writes from a database of such a scale. How is such high concurrency achieved then for an app like this? I would guess Facebook/Twitter/ (name other big company) may have achieved this for their Applications as millions of people may be using them concurrently.
