Anyone want to be a test case for some hardware that I think will instantly resolve server performance for most servers?

I'm talking with a company that makes a bit of hardware that isn't cheap, but that I think would potentially allow Domino servers that are I/O bound (like you, my friend up in Canada) to get as much as ten times the scale and performance without any other changes. I'm talking to them about potentially doing a white paper. The project would require a few sites willing to try it out and be noted on the paper with some performance results (nothing proprietary, just some raw data numbers).

If you think your situation would be a workable fit, reply here or email me. It would be helpful to know if you actually think you could get the project approved. Obviously, "household name" companies would be extremely well received, but are not required.

* No, it's not an approved project yet -- it's an idea we're kicking around. I want to see what the interest is.

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......
