I haven't looked at the code, but is the backoff time of clients 
(exponentially) increasing on failure? If not it would make sense to 
make it so. Uploads would then adapt themselves to viable retry frequencies.

But I would also say, that t at h and tiles serving should probably not be 
part of the dev server. Moving t at h to a dedicated box would make sense, 
wouldn't it?
