Size of POST-request: 10 GB (e.g. HD video)
The front-server proxies the request to the upload-server.
After the upload has finished, the uploading client wants a quick "all
fine"-message (maximum 30 seconds).
If the upload-server gets the stream directly, the machine has has 4h to
parse the request (e.g. "upload-module" or "apache-fastcgi-module"). And
this does not overload the system.
