CERN IT here, and we're just deploying conserver. We use ipmitool to
access IPMI SOL consoles, with 2-300 clients per server. 

We've started using conserver for all new installations just recently,
so only five servers with about 900 client machines are deployed so far,
but we'll quickly be in the few thousand clients range later this year.

So far so good, it looks pretty stable. *fingers crossed*

N.B. we use external means (our configuration database) to keep track of
which client is connected to which server, and users connect to the
server in question directly.
