Has anyone seen a 25 TB data warehouse on SQL Server?

Has anyone seen a 25 TB data warehouse on SQL Server? I do not know of
such a thing, but maybe it exists out there.

I assume this is a rhetorical loaded question, but someone reading it
might be curious. Just in case they don't think to Google it,

Terraserver is pretty big, but I don't think it's 25 TB.

You'll find these and more if you search Google for
"25 terabytes"+"sql server 2000"
"30 terabytes"+"sql server 2000", etc.

Nope. I was hoping to find someone who had worked on a SQL Server
project in this size range. I see that a lot of these projects are
expected to grow to x-Terabytes in the future, but are not starting at
that size in the first year.

The reason I am asking is that my first thought is to use Teradata or
SAND, which were meant for VLDB projects.

I asked around about this, and a colleague of mine said he
has a financial data warehouse running SQL Server 2000 that
is currently > 30 TB.

I'll pass your "hoping to find someone" comment to him.

Contact me off-line Joe. I have hands-on experience with Teradata and
with other RDBMS products in the multi-terabyte range: There are a
number of options.

But keep in mind that if this is in the US you need to keep SarbOx and
the new FTC regs squarely in mind when chosing your approach. You can
do everything right technically and still be in violation of federal
law.

Joe,

Sure, I see one every day. And there are other huge data warehouses
out there running on SQL Server. The owners of them just don't
publicize it.

I gotta laugh every time you post that SQL Server is only for little
departmental databases. You really have no idea what some poeple are
doing with SQL Server these days.

That was me. Current size is 31 TB running Unisys ES7000 520 and EMC 40TB
total size of the SAN.
