Nit pick: ZEO handles each client connection and storage in a separate thread.
(So 30 storages and 16 clients means 480 threads :)

It is Python's GIL that prevents effective use of multiple processors.

ZEO goes out if it's way to let I/O C code run concurrently (since I/O isn't
subject to the GIL) and I've seen ZEO storage servers use up to 200% CPU
on 4-core boxes (2 cores worth, IOW).
