Can anyone share their experiences on Zope's performance, what your hardware / Zope configs are, and how you plan to scale ?

Reading this as a user of Plone, which hogs far more resources than Zope, I feel like a C programmer might if they saw someone ask whether others had managed to get their Assembly programs to perform OK. ;-)

If you put Apache or Squid in front of Zope to provide caching, and use, say, 2 ZEO clients , with 4 threads each, and use "this year's model" machine, say 2.5Ghz, 1G RAM (unless you've got loads of huge files inside the ZODB which isn't a great idea anyway) - that should really be most of the work.

Even if you plan to have a gigantic site with huge numbers of users, the time it would take for that content to be added and the userbase to grow would give you plenty of opportunity to explore a few other performance tricks in the meantime.
