2 copies of the sql database, 1 on each server zsyncing with each other, well live to static anyway. Realtime stuff carries on while the processing of drives and tiles is done on the db snapshot machine, thereby eliminating processing and memory load completely.
Basically, these things should be on separate servers, free to run simultaneously. It's really not that difficult to setup zsync on a cron job, or even to start it manually after last build.
The fact that the process has been stopped is the indication that currently, everything is ran together on the same server. What the hell?!

You may be missing the fact that the speeds gathered from all the users are saved to the db 24/7.
This means once the snapshot db is updated with new tiles they'd then have to merge the changes from the 'production' DB.
Either way, this is the kind of thing they probably meant with the infrastructure changes they are making. Hopefully they aren't done, because the improvements so far haven't been as major as what they were hinting at.
