Is it possible for a cluster to have about hundreds (or thousands) of nodes at one time?
I heard that there is a kind of "soft limit" in the size of a cluster due to the gossip performance, so 150 or thereabout is considered to be a maximum. Is this real? I've looked around Elasticsearch's official documents and lots of other blogs, but couldn't find out any information about the maximum node count in one cluster.
I totally understand that this all depends on network latency, system performance or whatever, but I'd like to know if there would be some "tangible" or "feasible" total node count in one cluster.
The reason why I'm asking is - I'd like to have petabyte scale of data in one cluster.
Thanks for your help in advance!
