1000 transactions per second onchain sounds like a lot of data. Does the Cardano team have a solution for keeping the ledger size small, or should we expect that the ledger/blockchain will just grow and grow until there are many terabytes of data? I know that there are solutions like for example distributing the data but where not every node needs to have every single piece of data(Solana) and snarking with a permanent blocksize that doesn't grow(Coda), but how is Cardano solving the problem?

The Cardano (ADA) network will perform a scheduled upgrade on Feb. 20 to introduce Ouroboros BFT, an improved consensus mechanism. The update is an intermediate step between the current Byron era and Shelley, which will introduce staking on mainnet.
