For some big project, I'm planing to deploy Varnish.
So I would be interested if you could precise the Operating system
you're using to run Varnish and the hardware type (CPU, memory, HD,

Does some of you run it in a virtualized environment?
(Xen, kvm, vmware).

We're a bit curious about how Varnish is used, what features are used and what is missing. What does a typical installation look like? The information you would choose to reveal to me would be aggregated and deleted and I promise you I won't use it for any sales activities or harass you in any way. We will pubish the result on this list if the feedback is significant. If you have the time and would like to help us please take some time and answer the questions in a direct mail to me. Thanks.
