  For 10K users, it doesn't really matter what you do.

  For 100K users, it matters a little more, but not a lot.  Just build a server using whatever you're comfortable with.  MySQL, etc.  Buy a server you can afford.  Pretty much anything nowadays will be ridiculously overpowered.

  The main thing is to clean up the MySQL tables occasionally.  I've seen people with 5 years accounting data (100M rows), and for some reason, the DB is slow.
