Seaside load-balancing on EC2

It just got a lot easier to implement load balanced and fault tolerant Seaside servers on Amazon EC2 as sticky sessions have just been announced as a feature of Elastic Load Balancing.

Before sticky sessions it was not guaranteed that subsequent web requests would go to the same server instance, which obviously is no good if you're running a Seaside application on more than one server. With sticky sessions that is no longer a problem.

Hmmm, anyone using CloudFork SimpleDB in a production environment. Seems like a great was to implement a "no single point of failure" system....
