There are no such "limits" in Solr. Rather, it is up to you to configure as 
much hardware as you need.

>From a practical perspective, I would say that you should try to limit 
machines to 100 million documents per node, and maybe 100 nodes maximum in a 
cluster. Those are not hard limits in any way, but beyond that, you will 
need to configure tune much more carefully. To put it another way, to go 
beyond that, you should expect to hire an "expert" to do so.

The more proper answer to your question is to do a "proof of concept" 
implementation in which you load a range of documents on your chosen 
hardware, both a single machine and a small cluster, and measure how much 
load it can handle and how it performs. And then scale your cluster based on 
that application-specific performance data.
