Youtube is also using Apache written in C and MySQL written in C/C++.
Youtube can add more servers if performance isn't sufficient.
Youtube web application is trivial compared to MySQL.
This does however not change the fact that Youtube use Python, which is a language with dynamic typing.
I am not going to argue whether a web application is more or less trivial than MySQL.
I just think we can all agree that Youtube does not really count as a "trivial" application.
