In Exchange Server 2007 CCR environment, what is the maximum amount of SG number and Database size if possible ? - You can have 50SG and 1 database per SG. Recommended size should be around100Gb but can live upto 200GB but i would never recommend you so.

in total I got 11 x SG with each of its DB is around 130 GB and the total number of users around 550-600 users - Nicely balanced ..... but 550-600 users each DB or all together

If all then seems no administration or Quota is set if per DB its good but i would still say if you can get to about 100GB .... hope there would be some white space as well :)
