    Excellent, thanks for this; I was unable to attend the live event and I was very pleased to see that it's almost exactly what I've implemented over the summer (with the proviso that I have yet to move to multiple application servers, this having been my next plan).

    Also, I'm a little unclear on whether the 600 hits/sec mentioned was using four JVMs on a single T1000 or on four separate machines. On a single T2000 we're currently able to process a sustained 342000 hits per hour which is just about our peak usage. Any pointers to documentation on that application clustering, as it's not easy to find on behind.blackboard.com?
