[First entry got corrupted...let's try
I knew that subject would get your attention.
A couple of weeks ago, when I blogged about scalability, a few people poked me that Notesbench numbers are all well and good, but real-world results are what really counts. The iSeries team, for example, has posted some incredible numbers -- 150,000 simulated 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 is a number I've seen at a few other customers. The question born of curiosity, though, is who has the biggest Domino server? I'm not sure the best way to find out. But I suppose a fun thing to do this holiday week would be to have a contest. Yes, a contest. Who has (or who has first-hand knowledge of) the biggest of the big honkin' Domino boxes?
What's a contest without a prize? I've never done this before, but why 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 the Opening 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 ;)
