I currently have 10,263 items in my database. All of the products contain the same amount of information. Is there a way I can estimate the size of my database if I added another 70,000 products?

Here's an approach you could use:

  1. Backup and copy your database.
  2. Create a copy of the Magento site, connecting it to the new database copy.
  3. Measure how large the database is.
  4. Delete all the products from the copy. Don't do this on your live site!
  5. Measure how large the database is.

The difference between #3 and #5 will tell you how much storage those 10,263 products took up. Multiply that by 6 to estimate the additional storage required to add the ~60,000 new products.
