One of the companies running ATS, of course, is Yahoo!, for
kinds of purposes:

Now to the other questions: I think major benefit of ATS
is that it delivers the promised performance out of the
box -- there's no need for "advanced" configuration tweaks
to get the same benchmark results as everyone else is
getting, all you need is the hardware. Once you need to
deliver more than 90K QPS, we'll talk :)

Finally, to customization: There's Plugins, you can write.
Despite the fact that Traffic Server is written in C++,
it has a clean C API, which can be used from pretty much
anything, i.e.: Python+ctypes (I wish I could find the
examples right now..). We're also working on integrating
Lua - whether as configuration language or as  programming
language or both remains to be seen.
