We have seen demos on both SmarTeam and Enterprise PDM. The group is really impressed by the Enterprise offering for it's simplicity and ease of use. We have been told that we would be more impressed by the Enterprise offering but that the software would run into future problems as the size of our database grew. We currently have around 40,000 SW Cad files being managed poorly by our PDMWorks software, and would like to bring into the new Enterprise system about 150,000 items from our ERP system as well as a about 50,000 other various PDF, Excel, Word, etc. data files. Naturally, the SW Cad files take up the largest amount of storage space, at this time around 110GB.


Does anyone else currently use Enterprise with a comparable database, have you had any problems? Initially we are looking at about 50 users scattered worldwide.  I just want to find out if we are looking at near term problems with Enterprise or if I am getting incorrect information on the limitations of Enterprise?
