As a result, if you add only one source IP address, the SI can support up to a maximum of 64,000 simultaneous connections to the real servers.If you configure 64 source IP addresses, the SI can support more simultaneous connections.

As site ideas go I would add that the site must provide minimal barriers to entry: no sign up necessary for trying out the site and start off with a good ui interface. IIS, where I specifically address this: can do something very similar to IIS and with tools such as phhttpd.--Dustin Puryear Author, Best Practices for Managing Linux and UNIX Servers Very informative article, great job!

You also don't need to have triggers because the data should be verified on the write database.It probably enjoys the benefit of kernel-space IO which is much faster than user-space. Maybe you can use different table types, caching policies, and other read optimizations as well. NAT only supports 64,000 connections per Source IP address.They'll be moving to a 250,000 IOPS Ram San to handle the load.Also upgraded to a core database machine with 512 GB of RAM, 32 CPU’s, SQLServer 2008 and Windows 2008.Lots of quirky sounds and fish swimming on the screen.

NET objects are created for every request) just IIS serving static pages (with server includes though) and with file caching in Windows, you could have as many files cached and you won't even have to read them from the hard drive (let's say a file is from 30k to 50k average and with the amount of memory he's got in his servers - many gigas as you mention here - you can have all or most profiles cached), if you check the newest members on the site you'll find that they have a number more than 6 millions which means he's got more than 6 million members (so this means a little over 6 million files/profiles) ..
