Using AWS as an example, at one of the businesses I worked at, we used Kinesis as an event bus. One shard handles 2MB/sec of output. This worked pretty well for thousands of messages a second, we even got up to the 100's of thousands by compressing the payload of the event message. After that, you can employ any number of strategies that work easily, such as shading and adding additional streams, and use a lambda to pipe the output of one stream to another. It scaled up to millions of messages by essentially pushing buttons in the AWS Console.
