That might be true using conventional servers for the back-end but the
apps I did and tested were developed on MY back-end.  When tested - I
was pushing about 35k simultaneous connections (sustained) with jumps
up to 45k per network node.  Each connection was spanned across
HTTP,POP3, and SMTP :-)  All protocols mentioned were running on the
SAME machine.  Each connection had access to MySQL connectivity via my
own n-Tier Database API that could handle the thread pooling required
to handle such transactions.

This technology is something I am looking to bring to Lazarus and open
up for Cloud computing sometime soon.
