We have found Asterisk doesn't horizontally scale. Therefore, your choice is either to vertically scale and/or to specialize certain operations onto different machines. However, I do agree with Peter in that Asterisk will certainly scale for most people's needs.

Only considering Asterisk. I have three years experience with it, and
it will "supposedly" scale up a long way.

With all of the upgrades to Asterisk, it is a solid alternative.
Switchvox is making it easier and easier to install PBXs.
But as for scale: honestly, are you going to be connecting over 1000
calls simultaneously?
Doubtful, since even the larger CLECs only have 25,000 customers.
So Asterisk will work long time for you for low dollars - just spend the money for a really beefy server with dual or quad Xeon and lots of RAM.
