Regarding performances of SharePoint Lists and SharePoint vs CDS

Dear Experts, 

 

As I have done my 1st app, which consists with Master Data, Sales, Purchases, Inventory, Loans modules I would like to know the following, 

 

  1. When we have 5k to 10k lines in the list will the performance of app go down?
  2. What is the best between SharePoint lists or CDS ?
  3. If I created an app using CDS, will the users also need to by the plan to access to App. E.g let's say users have powerapps licence for office 365, I have plan 2 to access to CDS and create apps, So do the users also need to have plan 2 licence ?

Thank you for your support

Re: Regarding performances of SharePoint Lists and SharePoint vs CDS

1) This is dependent on how you select items from the List or Entity using delegable functions. CDS will have more delegable functions availability so it will provide better flexibility when working with large numbers of records.  

2) This is a very subjective judgement and a lot depends on the answer to #3.  CDS will require additional licensing and provides a relational entity model.  SharePoint costs less, is easier to use, and more lightweight.

3) Any app built using CDS as the back end data source will require all users running the app to have either a per App license, $10 per app/per user/per month, or a per User license $40 per user/per month/unlimited apps.

Please note: if you are going over 5k records in your SharePoint list you will need to "index" any columns that are used to perform FILTER, LOOKUP or SEARCH.
