We've been using it as well in what I would consider a very small
setup: 150 domains, most with almost no traffic to speak of, but 3 or
4 with decent traffic (the high traffic ones serving over 50k end-user
CPE for VoIP traffic with very short TTLs ). The MySQL back-end
really is a claim to fame - it makes administration really easy to
integrate into whatever you want.
We have also been using poweradmin for basic management for things not
under programmatic MySQL management. It's basic and a bit kludgy, but
definitely adequate, and easy enough to hack into your own idea of
what it should be.
