comment Apache performance degrades dramatically above ~256 simultaneous requests
voretaq7: I was initially thinking along these same lines, since a typical request would also involve php/mysql, but the problem persists at the same threshold even when serving completely static content.

ceejayoz: I appreciate the suggestions, but fundamentally I believe that Apache should not be this slow. There are a lot of things we can do to mitigate the effect of the problem, but I would much rather fix or at least understand it.

comment Centralized virtualization (ESXi, XenServer) in a completely Windows-free environment
This looks very promising. The odd thing is that the documented workflow for deploying the appliance (unless I'm reading it wrong) requires you to already have a working Windows client in place before you can deploy the server. So far this seems like the closest option, but it still seems like an imperfect solution.
