They both require the same degree of persistence because artifacts have 
to be bound to a particular SP, so you have to store that information at 
a minimum.

Neither is particularly practical in a clustered environment that wants 
to avoid a single point of failure, particularly if your cluster is 
separated widely.

That's why 2.0 uses indexed endpoints and ensures each artifact can be 
bound to a specific one.

There are in-memory approaches such as JGroups that seem among the most 
practical way to deal with it for now.
