How large of a catalog can Magento handle? How many categories? How many products? What size(s) catalogs has Magento been tested / benchmarked with?

Assume we’re talking about a standard Magento installation on a dedicated web server with typical hardware. For example, a Core 2 Duo with 2GB RAM running Apache/MySQL.

80,000 products in 5,000 or so categories is the largest I’ve heard on a single server but that person is currently making a DB cluster and looking to serve images from a dedicated image server. Magento doesn’t have built-in limitations, you just have to give it the right environment to flourish.

DB Cluster with Master write server and Slave read servers
Image server
Load balancing

etc.
