PDM Systems and Configurations

We are looking towards implimenting an ERP system with PDM.  I would like to start setting up our standard library of parts and was wondering if PDM systems had a problem with configurations.  For example, we have one standard part that is small (2mb) because we have multiple configurations of it. If I use the ConfigRipper tool to create individual files for each configuration I am taking up closed to 1gb.  That is just one file and we have thousands with that many configurations.  We were told that individual files were the way to go with PDM.  Does anyone know if that is true?  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
