These are those that I know made with Twisted + Nevow

There are others obviously. And other people will tell you about sites made
with other python frameworks.

BTW: I'm writing a forum with Nevow, and from the last tests I've run, I can
tell you that with a normal page (3 db queries) and no caching or
optimizations, I can handle 600.000 connections/day which is almost
I've used ab to measure this performances and I think they are good ones.
