| Hi,
| i have two web-apps based on seaside. Both of them are currently
| running on an amazon ec2 micro-instance (windows).
| There are two pharo-instances running, listening on different ports
| (non-reduced images, gui is running). Both images are behind apache
| 2.2 (using virtual hosts and mod_proxy).
| Persistence is image-based, using serialization as seen here:
| http://onsmalltalk.com/simple-image-based-persistence-in-squeak
| The number of users is very limited at the time und won't exceed 20 in
| the next months. The number of domain-objects is very limited too.
| Is pharo (currently 1.4) the right-choice?
| Why/ when should i switch to Linux as server?
| What would be a good argument to migrate to GLASS?


There is no pat answer to this question ... I would recommend that you look ahead and do some load testing (based on anticipated load) on your Pharo1.4-based system in an isolated sandbox (on ec2 or locally), find your bottle necks and try out various solutions ... If you run into a loading issue that you can't easily solve, then ask your question again on this list ... specific problem areas will have specific solutions that may or may not involve having to switch to Linux or GLASS or some other combination.

If during load testing you find that the current setup will be able to handle your anticipated needs then you can rest easy:)
