Note that the Assets Sizing Guide should be used as a guideline to start with [ 0] . Although, usually ordered folder does have the performance overhead and should be < 1000 assets as a general high-level best practice. For larger numbers, have a look at unordered folders only.

OAK recommends using *un-orderable* node type to scale large number of child nodes [ 1] . Use sling:Folder node type instead of sling:orderedFolder.
