Most people have directors with several identical backends. I've got
it the other way around: Several standalone apache, lighty and nginx
bokses serving different stuff according to host and url.
This particular varnishbox is a HP Proliant BL460c G1 2XDualcore 2.66
Ghz with 6 GB of RAM.
Running Centos5.3. Only tuning is /var/lib/varnish on tmpfs
The most active backend is a vmware-image running apache and 2GB of RAM.
Serving approx 25-50 hits/sec
