Give it a shot. If it can handle the data from CERN you also have quite a growth path. One fun project we did: run it on a Rasberry Pi to collect weather data from Arduinos all mounted in a small sail boat (the Pi in the cabin, the Arduinos on the masts). Occasionally when the Wifi or 3G shield picks up a network, it replicated back to a cloud server.
