Ignoring the magic 2b number for a moment, I think the overall question is whether or not
single shards should perform well in the hundreds of millions of documents range. The alternative
is more shards, but it is quite an explicit process to handle shard-juggling. From an end-user
perspective, the underlying technology matters little: Whatever the choice, it should be possible
to install "something" on a machine and expect it to scale within the hardware limitations
without much ado.
