Hey David 👋 lakeFS is working on the object level, so it supports any file you store in your object store. It provides sort of proxy to your object store, with additional features like versioning, reproducibility, isolation, etc

I'm working with GCP suit to process data that is coming from Pharmaceutical plants, like sensors but also laboratory tests and we are interesting to track changes in such data.

There's no real limit for lakeFS, there are practices following the type of usage The limit is driven from the object store hosting your files (i.e Google Storage, AWS S3, etc) Also, the usage pattern might impact the sizing
