A common question customers have is "how many users can Metabase support?" or "what configuration do I need to support N number of concurrent users".

We should add some documentation to at least give a high level over for these scenarios. For example:

Metabase scales to several hundred users and thousands of questions with a single server deployment. When scaling Metabase, there are several components to keep in mind: The HTTP server (Jetty), the application database, and the data warehouse. Each of these components can be scaled or configured individually and should tracked as Metabase usage increases.

App DB/Data Warehouse DB pool sizes

Metabase can also be run in a clustered environment. Session state is stored in the database so you can easily run Metabase behind a load balancer. While sticky sessions are not required, many folks enable them for consistency and ease of debugging.
