If you use ASP with compiled DLLs, you can set it up so that the
DLL is in memory and stays there, with a separate data area for
each session, and you can set session timeouts.

So if you have a web access that calls the DLL, it is loaded in
and stays there until the last session times out. This makes for
incredibly fast response, and a low resource profile. I give the
example of 1,000 simulatneous logins on our elearning product
that is compiled VB6 dll.

That 's on NT 4, running on a 64MB 100 mhz (real old) Pentium.

I noticed an article that mentions magnetic RAM (hows that for
full circle?) Doesn't have the speed or capacity of DRAM yet,
but give them time.
