Amazon does not have a J2EE architecture. They use custom C++ stuff and Perl.

The point of the article is that PHP can scale to handle large sites as well as Java can. The fact that an HTTP load-balancer is separate from PHP looks like a positive thing to many people. Fail-over is typically provided by the load-balancer as well, assuming you are using one of the many approaches for sharing session data with PHP.
