litespeed on High I/O amazon ec2
can someone make a guess how many concurrent users can LITESPEED handle on a site with this setting (considering all content is static and the rest in cache) ?.. all the dynamic content comes from a proxy context via xmlhttprequest (ajax) to a xml cached content. the proxy-target server is other than the lsws

I am trying to prepare for an event we have every year that has over 90,000 concurrent connections for 24 hrs. We normally loadbalance 2 or 3 cache servers. But I want to give litespeed a chance for this year's.
And yes this is considering the Enterprise 8 CPU version.
