    Hi,

    If I was to build a saas (software as a service) type of application that
    potentially would have 1000 customers and 30,000 users then what kind of
    infrastructure would you need?

    I have built plenty of smaller applications with IIS and the database on a
    single windows 2003 server. But I guess I would need a web farm approach?

    So, would that mean 2-3 IIS servers, a seperate DB server, a state server
    (?), a load balancer? etc?

    Any ideas or pointers would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    If you want to horizontally scale.....then I would suggest

    Middle Tier machines exposing WCF services.

    Hardware or Software load balancer.

    Software based Load Balancing:
