I am creating an application with which to collate and report
election results from about 21500 polling stations. I will be using
Coldfusion 8 standard edition. I will have an ISP create the setup
for me so that the SMSed results will be channeled to my access
database for storage and for viewing.
I will be expecting a total of 43000 SMS messages within a
short period of time (1 - 2 hours in the best case scenario).
What are issues I need to look out for so my system does not
run into problems.

in standard edition, the SMS gateway is "limited to one
request". have you load tested your worst case for your
you also need to know how the sending SMS server reacts if
your cf standard box
starts queuing requests--many SMS aggregators have quirks
that makes working
for starters i'd reconsider access. it's really not meant for
environments. maybe postGres or mySql would be a better
choice (or really any
big iron db your ISP supports).
