The recommended size for 1 site collection is maximum 100 GB. If you think your application is going to be larger than that, I will suggest you go for another site collection.
A site collection can be as large as the content database size limit
for the applicable usage scenario.
In general, we
strongly recommend limiting the size of site collections to 100 GB for
the following reasons: Certain site collection actions, such as site
collection backup/restore or the Windows PowerShell cmdlet
Move-SPSite, cause large Microsoft SQL Server operations which can
affect performance or fail if other site collections are active in the
same database. For more information, see Move-SPSite.
SharePoint site collection backup and restore is only supported for a
maximum site collection size of 100 GB. For larger site collections,
the entire content database must be backed up. If multiple site
collections larger than 100 GB are contained in a single content
database, backup and restore operations can take a long time and are
at risk of failure.
