One answer is to use GemStone: thousands of VMs sharing terabytes of

I'm sorry you haven't gotten the message; we've certainly been trying  
to write it up. See the tutorial at http://seaside.gemstone.com/ 
tutorial. Also, we've got a couple blogs (http://programminggems.wordpress.com/ 
  and http://gemstonesoup.wordpress.com/), a web site (http://seaside.gemstone.com 
), and present at conferences and users groups. What more could we do  
to get your attention?

Unless, of course, your app is one that is aimed at a small users  
base. If someone offered me US$100K to write a Seaside app that would  
be used by only 10 users, I wouldn't tell them that there's no point.  
I'd scope the project and estimate whether it could be done for that
