Define a large installation?

That's something I've been wondering... We've set up a big central snort box
on a 16 core machine with 16GB or RAM and 1.2TB of disk.   We're currently
running 6 instances of snort on this hardware and plan on having 12-16
instances when our rollout is complete.   We'll likely also have a couple
remote sensors feeding stuff into MySQL over the network.

I'm sure there are some bigger installs out there.   Any folks done any this
size or larger and want to trade war stories and experiences?  I'm sure at
some point we will hit some limitations based on I/O.  I'd love to hear what
other folks do in those cases.  Is upgrading hardware the only answer?
