A note on Xindice 1.0, perhaps only anecdotal, but for what it's worth:

I can't speak for performance, since that's not an issue for my application,
but I've been successfully using Xindice 1.0 since it was released, and
I've never had any data corruption problems. It seems pretty stable,
stable enough that I'm not considering 1.1 until *it* has been around
awhile, *and* I get some time to actually implement it.

Since performance is usually a consideration in a production environment,
I can only say that testing with the planned hardware under a simulated
system load is probably your best bet.
