You're concentrating on the data within the database. That's only half the
picture. What are you going to *do* with the data in the database? You need to
analyze what "we will have a search engine searching into those data" means in
more detail.

Postgres is more than capable of storing 150Gb of data. There are people with
terabyte databases on this list. You need to define what types of queries you
need to perform, how many data they need to manipulate, and what your
performance requirements are for those queries.
