The maximum database size is usually limited to the hardware. If you have
unlimited hardware, then the database can be about a petabyte (1000
terabytes). For your 500M application, this is certainly enough.

The maximum number of columns in a table is now 1000.
The maximum number of rows per table is basically unlimited. You can have
billions of rows if not more.

Best of luck,
