Filemaker Capacity for Non-Normalized Data

Question asked by jeremyb on Oct 27, 2016

My databases main table is updated weekly with an additional 10,000 records, each containing 113 fields.  I then have calculation, summary and text fields built off of that and other joined tables.  Currently that main table has about 1.5 million records.  While I would like to normalize my database and generally reconstruct it better, should I be concerned that this volume will soon overwhelm Filemaker?  While no two databases are exactly alike, does anyone have experience with data that would dwarf my database, thereby allowing me to feel more comfortable for the time being?

Thanks,

Jeremy
