In my experience, Perlfect Search can't handle that many documents, 
and I'm not entirely sure where SWISH-E's limits are either.

Both products are search engines, not databases, and store their 
information in inverted indexes which are not designed to be 
addressable externally.  They can use a web browser interface to 
provide access to multiple users.  The files indexed must be 
accessible via the browser or Perlfect search will not work.

Best of luck,
