Who has the biggest

[First entry got corrupted...let's trythis again...]I knew that subject would get your attention.A couple of weeks ago, when I bloggedabout scalability, a few peoplepoked me that Notesbenchnumbers are all well and good, but real-world results are what really counts. The iSeries team, for example, has posted some incredible numbers-- 150,000simulated Domino users per server. But admittedly, I haven't seen that in a real-world deployment .IBM's pSeries deployment features 10-12,000 users per server, which isa number I've seen at a few other customers.  The question born ofcuriosity, though, is who has the biggest Domino server?  I'm notsure the best way to find out.  But I suppose a fun thing to do thisholiday week would be to have a contest.  Yes, a contest. Who has (or who has first-hand knowledge of) the biggest of the bighonkin' Domino boxes? What's a contest without a prize?  I've never done this before, butwhy not.  The person who can document the biggest Domino server wins...(drum roll, please...) If you are attending Lotusphere 2006,I will guarantee the winner a front-row seat for the opening general session. (Kristin/Sandra -- don't start throwing things, it's just one seat!) If the winner is not attending Lotusphere, I'll send a copy of theOpening General Session video (as if you were there!).I know, I know, I'm bound to get a few "size doesn't matter"comments.  Let's keep it clean, friends ;)
