Any experience with very large amount of data with CA?


We are about to use collective access for our new project, where we have to catalogue a massive amount of documents, photos and videos.
We used CA before, and it satisfies our requirements, but now we have to handle and make searchable more than 1Million records, with 15TB of data.
Does anybody have any experience with that amount of data?
Is CA can handle that, or it is depends on the webserver and the database?

Thanks for any advice.


  • I'd also be very interested in real-world experience with CA for large(r) collections as mentioned by Mafone.

    Also thanks in advance :)
