You can create a single database file as large as the OS/File System can support. For most modern file systems, the largest file size is larger than you could likely ever create (several hundred terabytes).

Firebird also supports a database which has "chunks" on multiple disks, but this mode is not recommended for beginners due to backup/restore considerations.
