I am planning to build a magento installation which will have like 100 multisites at first and then within the next 3 to 5 of months it will reach around 500 sites. Then probably 1000 stores with in an year. The number of products won't increase that much.

So basically I need a good set up on which I can set up this magento store!


This sounds like a really big project! I am not quite sure if it is reasonable to build a Magento store with so many stores, because scaling may be a big problem here. Although it of course also depends on the number of visits you plan to have. Anyway, you should probably have a look at some form of cloud setup. Amazon Web Services may be a good idea here. You can build big setups with it which scale perfectly. As a reference, you should have a look at this Magento SE question and specifically at the answer and resources of fbrnc.

  • Hi, thanks for replying. The number of visitors will be much less. I was thinking about having 2 dedis. One with SSD for the database and the other for the files and stuff. Anyway I will look into AWS. Thanks. – defiant Aug 13 '14 at 1:45
