Dear Experts,

I have a SharePoint front end and a separate MS SQL 2014 server for the backend.  The database size has grown to 1.2TB and, although its working fine,  its making me uncomfortable being this size.  

Is a single database of this size 'safe' to use?
What is the actual max limit for an SQL 2014 database?
Any tips on what I should be planning for? (can I split the database)

Many thanks
