    we are currently preparing a potentialy huge application for many users worldwide. We are creating a web application, but we don't have the time and resources to create our own forum engine, so we would like to use one done.
    My main concerns are currently performance and availability as we will have paying customers as well free users on the site.
    We are planning to deploy our application behind a failovered reverse proxy balancer on multiple web backends.
    Also we are planning to use clustred database in single master - multiple slaves setup.

    Is vBulletin ready for such a deployment? In short:

    deplyoing the same app on web backends
    using clustred database
    database driven php session handling
    static content offloading (we are using Amazon S3 + Cloud Front)
    content caching
    using X-Forwarded-For header as the users IP info source
    authorization overloading (we need to use our own login and session management API)
