Simple answer: we don't.  This sort of load balancing ends up not  
being an issue for us due to nature of the product -- rather than one  
large central application/DB, we have many relatively small,  
partitionable applications/DBs.  Because of this, "load balancing"  
simply ends up being a matter of how many independent accounts we can  
run on each server.

All of this does mean that we have limitations on the size and number  
of users for an individual account, but these are generally well  
beyond what any of our customers need or want..
