500 User Limit

Good Day All.

My first post, so please be kind.

I have installed Moodle on my own server and am developing my first course, which is gaining quite a bit of interest.  I already have enquiries for 2,000 candidates.  I have been told by a developer friend that Moodle has a capacity of 500 users.  

Can someone confirm if this is correct and if so, is there any way around this limit.

 We have some course with more than 2500 Students.

And in the System more than 60 000.

For Quiz at the same time (concurrent Users) You need about 1 GB memory (RAM) for 50 Users.

Nope... Moodle doesn't impose a limit on the number of users. 

Your hardware might (effectively) impose a limit on the number of people doing something at the same time.
