Absolutely! Pharo is not your only option to do cool Seaside. Besides GemStone there is VA Smalltalk. And there is Cincom Smalltalk.

Your true requirements with regards to performance and scalability you'll only find out once you deploy. As had been said before: test! Test! Test! Remember: Make It Work, Make It Right, Make It Fast.

Pharo is not your only Smalltalk (Seaside) option. You can develop in Pharo and deploy in GemStone, avoiding the database communication complications and scale.
