Re: Can anyone recommend a DAM with a centralized database

No, I don't have any experience with other DAM software, at least not enough to make any comparisons.

When I initially told it to scan my photo directory structure, it crashed part way through. Apparently giving it more than 60,000 files to scan at once was beyond some limit, or perhaps just a bug. So I split it up by telling it to scan a few subdirectories at a time. Once past that it now will do a rescan of everything with no problem.

As you say, it is still fairly new. They seem to be doing releases quite often to fix bugs and add features. For my limited use, I haven't seen any problems other than the inability to scan all my files at once.

Their server version certainly looks like it would be useful for your situation.
