What are the largest SQL projects in the world?

by Antonios Chatzipavlis

Πρόσφατα έπεσα μούρη με μούρη σε μια παρουσίαση του Kevin Cox που είχε το παραπάνω θέμα. Επειδή είναι αρκετά ενδιαφέρουσα και ρίχνει αρκετούς μύθους αποφάσισα να την μοιραστώ μαζί σας.

Ας ξεκινήσουμε με μερικά στατιστικά

Category Metric

Largest single database

70 ΤΒ

Largest table

20 ΤΒ

Biggest total data 1 application

88 PB

Highest database transactions per second 1 db (from Perfmon)

130.000

Fastest I/O subsystem in production (SQLIO 64k buffer)

18 GB/sec

Fastest “real time” cube

5 sec latency

data load for 1TB

20 minutes

Largest cube

12 TB

Ας προχωρήσουμε στα πιο ειδικά
