Well, technically limits is Terrabytes. But of course we have not test it on
such db. We do not have so big HDD :-)

I remember was guys that have use Valentina with db in 4-6 Gb.

If you want get opinion of Valentina users about its performance check this
page please:

I am not joking when saying that Valentina beat fileMaker in 100-1000 times,
as well as 4D. More mature dbs as MS SQL Server, Oracle, mySQL we can beat
in 10-30-300 times.

All depend on db structure, amount of records, kind of query you try to do.

Not so far was Korea guys that use Valentina on few GB db, they are long
time Oracle developers. So they was impressed by join on 2 tables that
Oracle do 3 minutes, Valentina 3 seconds.

We have made a lots of efforts to support this.
Valentina 2 was re-written from scratch on this reason also.
