That's one approach. If you don't need dynamic content, it is the best
practise. Unfortunately I'm not allowed to tell you any details about
the live sites you mentioned above, but the deployment is quite
straightforward. The most critical aspect is publishing the static pages
(deleting old ones etc.)

If you need dynamic content (personalization etc.), this is the most
common approach. A customer ran the live site on a load-balanced cluster
of 8 machines (distributed across 2 buildings) with 2 Tomcats each. The
content was shared via NFS.
If you use this scenario, make sure to fine-tune the caching
