We used it into our LAN server (P3/500 - 40Gb - NT - single domain - TCP/IP only) with good results (we suggest to purge it at least each 3-6 months in order to mantain good performance, based on your actualization volume (check out's) ). I have no information about web capabilities nor performance.
Back the VSS DBs up often, maintain them (using the various .exe tools provided), and do a test restore once in a while (especially if your VSS DB is large and not frequently maintained). It very likely may be helpful to split larger VSS DBs to create multiple smaller VSS databases. (In some dev environments they are kept below 4GB.)

For network installs see netsetup references in the installation documentation.
