  I don't know if rpmfind service qualifies as an "industry-strength 
products" but the RDF database of Linux package metadata
  http://rpmfind.net/linux/RDF/

 is the base for the rpmfind service and it's replication mechanism
 I've got nasty troubles with my logs lately but approximately 
10% of rpmfind.net traffic are just RDf metadata fetches (approx
half a million fetches per month). The catalogs are also used to
build mirrors of the service or the HTML pages front-end like
  http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/

 but I have no estimate for the number and popularity of mirrors.
