I use it extensively. I use Zinc-REST package to offer services. The answer how much it can handle in parallel is hard to answer. For this you need to tell what you are about to do. But a rule of thumb is not to exceed 5 parallel tasks that are working at the same time. But a lot of tasks have wait times while accessing another HTTP service, a database, a filesystem etc. For this you can easily go up to 10 I guess. 

But these numbers are more of a gut feeling then something scientific
