Upscaling Zope with ZEO on Windows

If you're using Plone for production level business applications and you're not yet using Zope Enterprise Objects (ZEO) I'd highly recommend switching over at your earliest opportunity.

If you've got a single server system with multiple CPUs or you want to be able to balance the application load over two or more servers, ZEO is the way to go.

I've recently switched over our Windows-based installation of Zope 2.7 (with Plone 2.0.5). The performance gains are easily worth the effort and I found a couple of resources on the Plone site that made the whole process easy to implement (see links below)

The added bonus is that new servers can now be added easily to the configuration as demand on the server increases making it a great long term solution for a production environment.

Here are the documents I found useful:
