How do seaside aida amber iliad etc. handle scaling?
I know you can use gemstone as massively concurent data store....
but for serving 1000s of web pages a second how?
In GemStone if you have 1000 requests per second and each page takes 20ms to handle, then you need 20 VMs to handle the load. If you have 2000 requests per second and each page takes 40ms to handle, then you need 80 VMs to handle the load. With appropriate hardware you can scale this up significantly. The design limit for concurrent VMs in GemStone is currently 32,767 (this was recently increased from 10,000 based on a customer request).
