What is the maximum amount of attached files in Confluence?

We are evaluating Systems and Need a System for attaching approx. 1 Million files. What is the recommended max. amount of file of Confluence? Are there Limits of the amount and file size?

How many Servers do we Need? We are planning a Cluster Service.

Does anybody has a similar Scenario?


Thanks in advance

@Natalie Wenz, The number of attachments an instance of Confluence can support is going to be limited by disk storage.  File size of attachments in controlled in the application systems settings.  I believe it is 10MB by default but can be changed per your needs. 

By Cluster service do you mean Data Center version of Confluence?  

And as far as the number of servers, it depends on the storage needs for the attachments as well as the design of the architecture.

Take a look at this for architecture information:
