Survey: Biggest Databases Approach 30 Terabytes "For its Top Ten Program, Winter Corp. gathers voluntary submissions from companies worldwide that are running large databases. The program requires that the databases must be in production and contain at least 1 terabyte of data (or 500 megabytes of data if running on Windows). The results, divided into 24 categories, are based on the amount of online data running on the database."
"The largest decision-support database in this year's survey is from France Telecom and handles 29.2 terabytes of data, triple the size of the top database in that category in Winter's last survey in 2001."
I wonder what the rules are regarding distributed databases. Could you submit the Semantic Web as a runner in this competition?
