This may not be the answer you're looking for, but consider what you
would do if you had that much non-XML data.  You'd probably use
a DBMS to handle the details of storing, querying, and updating
it in manageable transactions rather than ad hoc code, right?
You would have all sorts of DBMS options, from free software to enterprise
class fully-loaded products, and would choose whichever best fit
your budget and capability needs.

Well, the situation is pretty much the same with XML.  I'd urge
you to look at http://www.rpbourret.com/xml/XMLAndDatabases.htm
to see the range of technology options available, and look at the related
http://www.rpbourret.com/xml/XMLDatabaseProds.htm to see the
range of product options, from open source to enterprise-class.
