zookeeper is not really what you would call a scalable system because
all transactions that are updates go through the leader for
serialization. Zookeeper is, instead, a high throughput HA system.
That said, the throughput of a modest zookeeper cluster is fairly
prodigous so for the normal application of coordinating a large
cluster, these limits are beyond what just about anyone needs.
For other uses, though, 50 K updates per second wouldn't cut it.

Clearly Zookeeper can handle ensembles of a dozen or so servers.
an ensemble can one build with Zookeeper? 100 servers? 10,000
Are there limitations that make the system unusable at large numbers
