Hi Dan,

I wonder if you would mind describing your hosting platform? You receive 
alot of traffic and I am curious what hardware you have to serve your 

We are considering our options at the moment as our current setup is 
starting to struggle, clustering is one option we are considering but we 
have almost no expertise here for that and I haven't found much on the 
internet relating to it specifically for TYPO3 so we'd have quite a 
steep learning curve to overcome.

Kind Regards,
Graham Solomon
