Personally, I would only recommend split databases if ABSOLUTELY

Depends on how many DB connections you will have.

The maximum database and filesize work out to be the same, well above
1TB. I can't say I've ever heard of someone running a database larger
than 900GB.

I would recommend at least 8KB

Is your application made up of a large number of table or a small number
of table with a large amount of data?

The reason I ask is because v2.0 has a new internal record ID size which
allows for a single table to store more than 30-40GB of data. (The new
limit is > 1 TB)
