It's a simple question, and I'm looking for an honest answer.
The examples and showcases, and the way the administration screens are laid out, looks to me like SS is ideal for small websites - brochure sites and suchlike. That's all great, but how does it scale when a website gets large?
For example, if I have 400 pages, accessible through different privilege groups, and 4,000 news stories - how would SS perform? Since everything seems to appear as a node in the admin tree, what would those 4k news stories do to me administration session?
I'm just asking *before* I start looking seriously into using SS for a site that may grow large. If I knew the code inside-out, I would be able to recognise where the scalability issues would likely be, but that's much further down the line.
So - any practical experience on performance of large SS sites? Anyone here who knows the code and can give me an indication of areas where they feel there may be problems?
PS Scalability issues does not mean I definitely won't be using SS, but knowledge of where the performance problems would likely be would help to target any development effort.
