Spring Security and (hundreds of) thousands of users
Planning on creating a rather large (hundreds of thousands of users, millions of unique visitors per month) web-app using spring. This is obviously a best-case scenario for traffic, but just want to make sure spring and spring security are robust enough for the task.
Are Spring and SpringSecurity both good tools for this traffic load? Or is that really just dependent on your hardware? Are there any known sites out there right now, that server a similar traffic-base and run using Spring technology?

Personal opinion is that the performance of your application with a huge number of users will depend more on other decisions rather than whether to use spring / spring security or not. Namely, did you architect things in such a way that you can scale your application horizontally as load increases.
