The main capacity consideration for you would be storage on a suitable platform and therefore file system capacity is paramount.

   Hello all,

   I have been recently ask the question on DSpace scalability - assume the
project:

16 millions of items (bistreams size about 230 TB) increasing by 3
millions items (86 TB) per year

   Is DSpace able to handle this? My answer was I don't know. Is anyone
working with such big loads of data? What is your opinion?

   Regards,
