It depends on the hardware configuration of your server computer, but you can expect to have around 250-300 concurrent users per Thin@ server without any noticable performance penalties.
NOTE: In the past, Windows Heap Size Limitation was a limiting factor. However, in Windows Server 2003 (64-bit), Windows Server 2008 (23-bit and 64-bit), Windows 7 and Windows Vista this is no longer an issue. Read more about Thin@ Server hardware configuration.
ThiN@ was fully and thoroughly tested to work bug-free with the latest Clarion release, as will always be the case. The supported Clarion versions are: 9.0, 8.0, 7.3, 7.2 (available in the zip-archive), 6.3, 6.2 and 6.1.
Different technology. Clarion IP driver only separates database process to server side but all window operations, calculcations and other functions are still client dependent.
Thin@ uses the client only to draw the user interface of the server side application. All application operations are server dependent and Thin@ is completly database independent as well.
Combining Thin@ + IP driver is an excellent solution for companies that look for a professional but still inexpensive RIA hosting solution with a server farm and using the TopSpeed database.
