Eager to see a valid answer to this one !

75 M docs... wow.. that's a lot of data right there.

I'll try thinking some basics facts: you should have no more than 1000 docs per node. So you will need 75.000 nodes. And then you will need 75 super nodes, containing 1000 nodes each one...

Having said that, we will need more info about your 75M documents to state a solution: what type of attachments, size of e/o, do you need to index also the attachments ? what's the logic about your documents, is there any numbered sequence, alphabetical order, etc. etc.

Have you read the performance report on Kentico 8? It is only tested with 100,000 pages but if you're looking for more, you might reach out to Kentico Support directly (support at kentico dot com) and ask them directly.

Before we jump into conclusions, we need to have some additional information about the story behind. If you send us an e-mail to consulting[at]kentico[dot]com, one of our solution architects will reach out to you and suggest the right way to implement it based on your requirements. Then, we can share the results here.

I know for sure that 75M pages in the content tree without any customization and optimization is not an option (it goes far beyond Kentico's limits and its common usage).
