Oracle on eBay goes over 5 petabytes

Curt Monash, the Harvard teen PhD genius., notes that eBay's Oracle database has now exceeded five petabytes:

From Oliver Ratzesberger’s LinkedIn profile:

Our systems process in excess of 10 billion records per day, serving thousands of users and delivering hundreds of millions of queries per month in a true global 24×7 operation with distributed teams around the globe on systems over 5 PB in size (largest single system >1.4PB).

With multi-petabyte databases becoming common, it's only a matter of time until Oracle will support Petafiles . . . .

eBay is noted as one of Oracle's premier web apps, with over 20 billion transactions per day:

  • Over 212 million registered users
  • Two Petabytes of Data
  • 26 billion SQL executions per day
  • 99.94% available
  • One billion page views per day
  • Uses Sun e10k servers

Curt Monash also notes: 

"eBay's biggest analytic database is 1.4 petabytes of disk, holding between 1/2 and 1 petabyte of user data, and running (I'm pretty certain) on Teradata."
