Our Confluence system is forever expanding and we need to keep an eye on the future growth to ensure we keep it as efficient as possible for the users. We have 48 global spaces and 78 personal spaces.
Does both the global and personal space have an impact on the system performance?
I've heard of companies with hundreds of spaces. Confluence is designed to support lots of spaces. You should be fine. Now, you do want to make sure that you have disk space for all the data. Certainly if you add more spaces you're going to need more disk space. Also, it stands to reason that as you add more spaces you are probably adding more users as well, so your load on the server will be more due to increased traffic. But simply adding more spaces, if nothing else changed, shouldn't affect the performance of your site.
We know about Confluence instances with thousands of spaces!
It obviously depends on the hardware, but Confluence software should be easily handle your scale.
On the other hand, the space count by itselft is not very critical. The number of pages, page versions, comments, attachments (their filesizes), attachment versions have more significant effect on the end-user performance experience.
