Well there's some info missing. Like what would you actually be _doing_ with
these data?

15,000 inserts per day is nothing. But after 18 months that's over 5M records
not including the 10% growth rate. 5M records isn't really all that much but
it's enough that it's possible to write slow queries against it.

If you're doing big batch updates or complex reports against the data that
will be more interesting than the inserts.
