Vaadin Performance

I’m going to develop a web application using Vaadin 7. My application will be used by ~500 users at the same time. And I need high response performance and high security control. In my application I will need some pretty widgets and I will use an OpenLayers framework. Could You tell me if Vaadin is a good solution for this app?
