Kindly i have a question, How many users that can join a session in collaborate original experience or ultra??
Regarding Collaborate Classic (a.k.a. Original Experience f.n.a ElluminateLive) gear, my personal high score is 887 users peak in the main session of a global "follow the sun" conference, happened some years ago with v10 gear.
Collaborate Classic is officially specified as "max.1.000 users", but with restricted toolset and "Blackboard participation" only. The practical watermark for adhoc stability with full toolset is 400 users. If you exspect there might be more coming, you should prepare your session in advance (>72 h before session start). For perfect stability and user experience of such large events, I strongly recommend
Regarding Collaborate Ultra,
I'm currently not aware of large event scores nor user success reports(I may have missed such Blackboard infos on this community site, any hint welcome)
Here are my 2ct, why Collaborate Ultra's new max.250 users limit sounds awesome compared to Classic's 1000 users limit,
Bottom lined, it will take much more server ressources to handle 250 participants in an Ultra session than 1000 participants in a Classic session.Blackboard has made a great job, if this 250 user capability does show stable under any circumstances in each datacenter.
My current "Large Ultra Event" recommendation
As long as we do not have large Ultra event success reports, it might be a good idea anyway to open a support case for any Ultra session exspected to exceed a 100 user watermark. From my consultant's perspective, datacenter OPs should become aware of challenging >100 Collaborate Ultra sessions. Official Blackboard comments on this point are welcome. In addition, I welcome any user reports on large events held.

Collaborate Ultra currently has a limit of 100 concurrent users. Classic I believe supports 250, but I'm not entirely sure.
EDIT: Per Marissa Dimino, Collaborate Ultra can now support up to 250 users.
Thanks a lot Cliff, it was helpful
