Hello,

MySQL has no limit on the number of databases. The underlying file system may have a limit on the number of directories.

MySQL has no limit on the number of tables. The underlying file system may have a limit on the number of files that represent tables. Individual storage engines may impose engine-specific constraints. Our managed database cluster uses InnoDB. InnoDB permits up to 4 billion tables.

For reference:

Hope that this helps.
