I currently design a Subversion architecture. The server will be accessed simultaneously by hundreds of clients (in automated scripts), so scalability is a great concern.
Our idea was to put the Subversion repository on a highly available file server (which already exists) and to set up several Apache servers, which will access the repository on the file server. So the clients will access the repository through one of the Apache server.
With such an infrastructure, we balance the load between several Apache servers (which require a lot of CPU power). We plan to use Windows NLB to automatically balance the load between the Apache servers.
What is your feeling about such an infrastructure?
What is your advice do deal with Subversion scalability problems?
