We have a new small performance lab at PrimeKey, a 2U machine with 4 physical servers, each with dual quad code CPUs, 3 SSD disks (striped) and 24GB RAM. It's good for testing high loads and large volumes, and we've been doing just that for the 3.10.5 release.
I have been running postgresql on one machine, with two appservers and one test client for a while. I managed to get a single appserver with EJBCA issuing up to 300 certificates per second. It's pretty quick to issue some 20 million certs with that speed. No slowdowns so far...
Now I'm installing Oracle on one of the machines. Unfortunately you have to run an old RHEL4 to install oracle so it takes some time and frustration (compared to installing ubuntu and postgres).
