From the release notes:
This release has shown good performance under commercial conditions with:
- 30 concurrent users
- 60.000 topics
- 200.000 associations
- 200.000 occurrences
- 7.000 files
- + 3 smaller stores
If that sounds like a small number of concurrent users, consider the following statistics from 2008 on businesses in the United States:
|Nonemployers (no payroll)||21,708,021|
|Firms with 1 to 4 employees||3,617,764|
|Firms with 5 to 9 employees||1,044,065|
|Firms with 10 to 20 employees||633,141|
The next break is 20 to 99 employees.
With 30 concurrent users, Topincs supports more users than more than 97% of all U.S. businesses have employees.
Different way to think about marketing a product.
For < 20 employees, there are 26,646,290 potential purchasers. For > 20 employees there are 655,587 potential purchasers.
Which target sounds larger to you?
Anyone care to supply the numbers for other geographic areas?
