We are proud to announce that we were able to install a Drupal system with more than 6 million nodes, with excellent performance. It took a couple of days for us to tune some "out-of-the-box" settings that were not suitable for this kind of system, but after this, we got excellent performance.

More in detail, the "million node content type" is a new content type with CCK fields (more than 10 CCK fields) and something like 5 millions nodes of this content type. These CCK fields include node references and content taxonomy references.
