EVE infrastructure

Interesting article here on EVE/CCP’s use of IBM server tech to sustain their scalable server technology. I must admit I’ve always been impressed by their ability to grow the universe without having to break it into shards. Since massive universes have always been my thang, I’m curious as to the mechanics behind their scalable technology. I can see where the game mechanics help hide the boundaries between servers and where load balancing can be achieved, but I’d still like to poke around under the hood to see the little tricks they do to make it practical.
