Magento does not impose a limit on the number of products/categories as far as I know. It is more a question of what your hosting server can cope with.

One of the things our guest blogger mentions is that one company has 1.8 million SKUs!

So yea, I think 260k wouldn’t be a problem.

Few our clients did have between 200k to 500k products. And it worked fine.
But another our client did have only 100k items and around 100 categories. He was complained , that his site worked slowly. But as we checked, the cause was his hosting.
So i’m sure if you buy good hosting, everything will be cool!
If not, ask us info@magextension.com. We’ll try to solve your problem.

Thanks Rhonda, Magento is handling 300K+ comfortably, but its slow and we are now planning to use some caching techniques and extensions like Fooman Speedster. Any advices to speed up magento?

Handling means what ? it mainly depend upon the hardware and OS configuration how you are optimizing your server and database that is more important

1 - You can use CDN services .

2 - Sharding can help a lot

3 - Seperate your app server,DB server and Static files

4 - Run Nginx for the static and apache for App and DB

5 - Distributed caching (memcached) can help a lot

and many other stuff smile

You can upload as long list as but only things is getting lower of performance.(if more than 1 lack )

But this \"more than 55000 references\” makes site performance good. !

I would imagine it can handle a large amount of products and categories. Well over 200, 000+

Based on the number of top retail chains using the enterprise edition. It seems like a stable platform, but I think it depends on the type and speed of hosting. Importing that many products to Magento may be slow as well as the refresh.

I imported 90K products for one client. So it’s obvious that it can handle millions at least.
I think the question is bit related the db storage capacity of MySQL (~4GB)

Thanks

Few of our clients have 10K products and page executes in less then 1 sec( execution time).

Just You need to make sure that your hosting environment is good enough and configured for Magento.
