Your questions don't make sense to me. I'm not sure what "parallel workflows" and "configured datastore" mean.

If you're referring to number of transactions-per-second a cluster can handle, it depends on a lot of factors which include (but not limited to):

  • application use case
  • access patterns
  • hardware configuration
  • network bandwidth and IO
  • data model
  • cluster load
  • etc

You can only figure out how much your cluster can handle by testing it.

Also, how much data can be stored on the nodes and how long depends on your cluster's hardware configuration. Again, you can only figure that out by performing tests. Cheers!
