On my previous job, we developed a web based competition for The History 
Channel.  The followers of a tv documentary that lasted for about 6 weeks 
could participate in weekly competitions.  The chosen competition style 
from marketing people was based on a simple "how fast can you answer about 
something that was told on the documentary". 
This show was played on all the countries from Latin America, and hence we 
had then the worst scenario of a peak of load during an hour and almost 
none during the rest of the week.
We set up in the top layer an Apache to serve all static content and to 
perform the load balancing of all dynamic content to the 3 Seaside images 
running behind it, the data model was rather simple and we used Postgres 
to store it. 
All of this was running on a SINGLE server and everything runed well 
during the competition, the Seaside images responded and were very stable, 
they never crashed.  We had thousands of participants.
I hope this case of usage of Seaside for a public corporate project helps 
you out.

[Seaside] I need success stories


I almost have a business partner convinced to give Seaside a try for an 
upcoming web project.  However,  although I love the ideas behind the 
technology, and I would love to use Smalltalk on a real paying gig, I 
have a deep fear that if we get heavy traffic the system wouldn't keep up.

So, does anyone on this list have experience using Seaside in a high 
traffic scenario.  I'm talking 200+ hits per second at least.  How did 
it handle the load?  What sort of hardware did you choose?  What load 
balancing?  What database?
