It all depends on the volume of messages you are receiving. I have similar applications that run on multiple servers for load sharing and redundancy, and another that uses async ADO SQL requests so the main thread is not blocked - a response can be sent from the SQL request done event. The only snag with async SQL is you really need to queue requests, or use multiple connections to the server to run them in parallel.
