Maximum number of users / messages / data

Hi, I love bubble and have used it for a very simple basic ordering system for inhouse use. I am however wondering where the limits lie. I find bubble REALLLLLY slow even for this little project I did, Im sure I must be making extra calls etc that are slowing it down (I´m a newbie) but even the projects i am seeing on zerocode etc, all seem a bit sluggish.

My question is: if I make a fully blown marketplace website, with users, courses, forum, instant messaging etc… Where does the database limit lie. If you get 100 users, selling 5 courses each each with 10 people and intermessaging each other 10 messages a day that quickly adds up to nearly 20 million messages. Is bubble ever gonna be able to keep up with rapidly sorting through that? I know itd be a great problem to have, 20million messages is crazy optimistic but lets just imagine you get there…could it actually handle it in a decent manner or is it going to hang and take for ever to sort through all those messages? Is it a matter of organisation of the database that would make it usable or is it just all too much for bubble?

Lot’s of people have Bubble apps running at scale.

Anything running on the shared resources (so below Professional) tend to be a bit slow. Things that have reserved server capacity are faster. And you can always add more hamsters to your plan. Or even have a dedicated server.

Database organisation is key, however. If you running lots of searches within searches, then you can get into issues that no amount of server power will solve.

Thanks. Can you point me to any websites at scale that use bubble, I cant seem to find a list of such projects. :slight_smile:

I cant see any there. Unless u mean is actually a bubble app, but i doubt it :thinking: no? is built on bubble.

no way! thats pretty impressive. how did they manage the drag and drop functions of the editor and everything. I´m stunned :crazy_face::crazy_face::crazy_face:

Pretty sure the editor/builder is not built on Bubble.:thinking:

I’d guess that the parent website hosted at is built on Bubble, but not the editor.
