Datasets, from what I understand, keep the fetched data and resides in ram and/or disk cache. This is done mostly to reduce network traffic. The decision depends on business specif requirements I suppose.

"Dataset" could be a wrong word your client is referring to?

Data set

DataSet Class

I guess, what your client means is that: Is it possible to hold 30.000 records in the databases (instead of today 10.000)

of course, a 30,000 records in a database is consider small database, which commercial database products are able to manage that easily.
