A single proxy can handle about 8000 - 10000 parallel connections when it is run a on a recent kernel. This is handled on a single process and is using syscalls like epoll() to make this scalable.

A sleeping connections is very cheap, active connections are cheap too, of not too much time is spent in the lua layer.

You can start with a single proxy. If you want to make it fault-tolerant, take a second box and install a second instance there.

Now, you need to tell you app to load-balancers over the two proxies or you take a local proxy on the app-server and let it balance you you.
