Hi, I discovered Hive a few months ago, and I'm fascinated by the scale this network is running on. With 20,000 slots and 8,000 people on (currently), assuming Hive uses one Bukkit server per game instance (i.e. the 24 slot servers), that's at least 800 Bukkit servers. However, those Bukkit servers could be running multiple instances of one game mode, or even multiple instances of multiple game modes. That could cut the figure down to 400 Bukkit servers if every Bukkit server could hold 48 players. I'm going to make the assumption that Hive makes use of dedicated servers, possibly one per two Bukkit servers if the hardware of these servers isn't fantastic, but there's an abundance of dedicated servers (400 Bukkit servers / 2 Bukkit servers per dedicated server = 200). Alternatively, there could be 8 Bukkit servers on one dedicated server (for example) if the hardware was sufficient, then there would be less (only 50) dedicated servers. My question to the Hive is this: what hardware does the network run on, and how are your individual Bukkit servers balanced across this hardware?
