Linux Powers Giant Database: 400TB of Climate Data and Counting

,----[ Quote ]
| Underlying the WDCC's data archive is the
| CERA-2 (Climate and Environmental Retrieving
| and Archiving) database system, one of the
| world's largest databases. As of late 2008,
| it has around 400 TB of data, and nearly a
| thousand named users. Running on NEC and
| Solaris machines, it's a federated ORACLE
| database connected to a set of StorageTek
| tape libraries hosted at DKRZ (the tape
| libraries themselves have a 60 PB capacity,
| but they store data other than that belonging
| to the WDCC). The database itself is a
| distributed system across multiple NEC
| machines running Linux.
