Is there any maximum database size more MySQL, or is it simply counted as part of your overall disk quota? I'm curious because I got burned on this at 1and1.com when I hit 100MB.

Hi,

There is no hard limit for database size. Note, your database sizes do count toward your total disk space quota. If your database, because of its size or queries, is negatively effecting other customers on the server then we'll email you to look into the problem. However, if it doesn't cause any problems you are more than welcome to let it grow! :)

Thanks. We're not planning on beating the crap out of the DB server, but we do have a set of test data that is on the order of 200-300MB. Most of our filtering/massaging is happening offline and then inserted into a live WordPress site.
