Just checked, for storage + sparql + reasonable response times, 10^6
triples should be fine ("low millions for now").

What I forgot to mention was money - the Talis Platform Early Access
programme is all free (the only commitment being to let us know how
you get on), think of it as a semi-private beta. The current thinking
is that stores will be made available indefinitely for community/open
data/academic/research/non-profit kind of projects, with some kind of
charge probably being put on commercial usage in the future (to be
decided).

If you use IRC and want to chat, drop into #talis on irc.freenode.net ...

Cheers,
Danny.
