Older discussion on that topic:
In one of the threads above David Enyeart shared a nice section regarding PDC vs channel:
You have to consider some numbers when dealing with the ordering service cluster and number of channels per orderer:
The management of the channels may bring overhead. However it is important to consider the functional requirements first and then decide on the technical model.
Note that since HLF 2.x version implicit PDC is available: https://hyperledger-fabric.readthedocs.io/en/latest/private-data-arch.html#implicit-private-data-collections
It is mostly about your functional / privacy requirements. Technically speaking I see no problem scaling to 8 channels (ledgers) if your business will benefit from it. Channel management may be a maintenance concern depending on how often you need to do updates (i.e. deploy chaincodes, change policies, etc). However if regular updates are required we usually automate the steps anyways.
