Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Plays in the Big Leagues

Microsoft is designing a 270TB, multinode data warehouse for a foreign government, and a 162TB single node database for their own internal use. This was announced at last week’s Professional Association for SQl Server (PASS) conference in Seattle.

I know from daily personal experience that SQL Server 2005 can easily handle multi-terabyte OLTP databases on commodity level server hardware. Microsoft also has some pretty impressive TPC-C results with SQL Server 2005.
