There are no easy numbers for this - but WSO2 has a strong number of
case studies including at least one customer doing 150m
transactions/day. In addition, there are some discussions archived in
the user list, including the US Army and various others. I can discuss
production systems offline under an NDA if necessary. There are also
public case studies with Concur and Chapdelaine on the WSO2 site.

This depends on what you are doing - but in general the performance is
excellent with flat memory usage. If you aren't doing complex
transformations you should see memory usage in the 100-300Mb size and
a fairly average processor (say a quad-core single CPU) should handle
at least 1000tps.

WSO2 offers commercial support 24x7. There are other companies as well.

There are some useful settings in the benchmarks here:

However, Synapse is designed to perform well out of the box.
