Oracle powers world's largest commercial database

Oracle has set a new record by powering 100 TERABYTE DATA WAREHOUSE. Their customers run four top 10 largest support system databases and powers nine top 10 UNIX OLTP. Survey determined that the largest transaction processing system on UNIX runs an Oracle Database, containing over 16 TB of data. Oracle is used by three of the 10 largest UNIX DATA WAREHOUSES.

The article says it's the first time Linux had its own categories for DSS and OLTP:

"This year's survey marks the first time that the Linux operating system had its own categories for DSS and OLTP. In total, 12 systems (eight DSS and four OLTP systems) running Linux were measured ? all of them running Oracle Database. Two of these Linux data warehouse systems cracked the TopTen All Environments in the database size category. The world's largest Linux data warehouse measures 24.8 TB, good enough for sixth overall in the top 10 largest data warehouse category. Oracle is the only database vendor whose customers posted top results on Linux, UNIX and Windows platforms."
