Scaling JIRA instance

HI All

Do we have any official upper limit on issues on JIRA 6 when it is recommended by atlassian to create another instance.

I know on jira3 there was 200K, it was 500K on jira5. But i am not sure of any such upper limit beyond which the performance starts getting affected.?

Can you help please?

There is no such limit now. And I have seen instance with a million issues. You can learn a lot more about scaling JIRA at

Thanks Jobin for your response.
