How many users/clients are you expecting? CouchDB itself scales quite well
as far as the size of the DB is concerned (especially in the numbers of
files you are talking about). It also scales well for numbers of synchronous
users/clients, though if needed you can look at BigCouch for increased
scalability as far as that is concerned I think (you can create a couch in
the cloud). If documents or attachments are relatively stable (not being
changed excessively often--like every couple of seconds), performance is
quite high. Of course, your application will need to be built to scale
well--check out the CouchDB guide online for a starter on how couch (and
your app) can scale:
