MapServer might be useless, if you have complete pre-generated tilesets
of your static, vectorial data. But this depends on the disk-space
needed for a complete tileset, the frequency of data changes, etc.
MapServer is also great when it comes to serving tiles via standard WMS
requests (with data region not bound to tile extension)...
