Did you try sane-airscan instead of sane-escl?

Do you really need each of 3000 machines to have access to each of 530 

I guess, on each of the 530 stores you have one scanner and ~6 machines, 
connected through the local network.

If you use eSCL protocol with the working backend, and client machine 
and scanner are on the same LAN, typically no configuration is required; 
scanner is automatically discovered by client computers via LAN.

So in your situation, it would be better to rely on automatic discovery 
and configure 0 machines instead of 530 or 3000.

I'm also concerned about technical possibility for a single computer to 
serve 530 scanners to 3000 clients. It can be quite noticeable load for 
a single computer.
