Hi Jeff,

Yes MapServer is suitable for a large volume server.  Topozone 
(http://www.topozone.com/) is a large volume site with mapserver as its 
backend, and is run by Ed McNierney, a vocal MapServer list member.  I 
would search the archives for a message from him and contact him 
offlist, if you need to talk to someone with firsthand experience with 
high volumes.
