What are the fundamental limits of the Shotgun setup? We push through perhaps 2 dozen projects a year. I'd like to give some consideration to what is stored where (in terms of filespace provision) and procedures needed for offlining, archiving, retrieving and reintegrating projects.
From looking at your tech specs (and a recent Shotgun crash message) I can see you're built on Ruby, Gems, Rails and Phusion but with a Python API. Have you a recommendation for the point at which load-balancing is desireable? Clustering?
