Today I was asked about scaling mod_perl to handle really big loads. They mentioned the possible direction of a J2EE solution.
Now I didn't have any statistics handy to back why mod_perl can scale, but I after mentioning that mod_perl runs Slashdot.org, and TicketMaster.com, I made a bold statment:
"I'd wager my career that mod_perl can scale as well as any other technology."

In this journal entry I hereby make good on my answer of yes to that question
