Any such production work would be very early.  I don't know for sure of any
such work, but I have heard of several projects that were near production

This should change significantly over the next  quarter or so.

That depends a lot on the sizes of what you are working on.

If you add more details, it would be easier to help, but the basics still
apply.  If broadcast joins are practical, then storing everything in flat
files is probably the best since you will just be scanning the fact table.

Drill has no specific capabilities to support encryption.  If encryption
means data at rest, drill will not care.  If encryption means that you are
using consistent masking, then Drill may work without ever knowing what the
data is.

At this time, Drill does not encrypt wire transmissions.  If you care
enough to encrypt, you may care about this.  That will change before long.

There is no specific limit, but there will be practical limits.  I don't
that the boundaries are well tested here yet.
