This math is (may be) wrong.. cause nobody said that the 30k per/sec is 
average/sustained rate so you can't multiply it that way.
At peaks we get some 30k php page requests per second also (and each 
memcached pushing out 20-30 megabytes per sec).. but it kinda drops quite a 
lot in the "night" hours.
